My aim is to help you to overcome the problems and issues that bring you to therapy, exploring them in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
Central to my approach is the use of Gestalt. Gestalt is a particular humanistic approach that doesn’t give people labels; instead I work to understand you in the context of the world you live in. Instead of you feeling forced to change in a way you feel you should, As your counsellor I will help you explore your thoughts and feelings in order that you become more aware of your needs and wants. I will help you to become aware of the patterns in your life, and to support you in making the changes you want to make.
Why come for counselling?
Counselling is proven to increase wellbeing and reduce distress. It enables you to explore and work through issues that concern you. The benefits of counselling include greater motivation, improved self-esteem, and an increased ability to cope with the pressures of daily life.
I can help with a wide variety of issues, such as:
Self-esteem, anxiety, depression, problems at work, stress, drug and alcohol dependency, abuse, self harm, eating disorders, anger, disability, loss and bereavement, lack of meaning and relationship difficulties.
But if the above descriptions don’t fit what you’re experiencing please contact me, as my focus is always on your individual experience.
I have extensive experience in building relationships and providing support to people in a wide range of settings. My previous career was in a fast-paced business environment, so I am also aware of the potential stresses and anxieties that happen in the workplace.
I hold professional indemnity insurance, and a current DBS certificate in working with vulnerable adults,
My practice is LGBT affirmative.
