About Counselling

Having a safe place to explore your issues within a supportive, therapeutic relationship can help you see things more clearly. The relationship between you and your counsellor is important, it can enable you to get to know yourself better and reflect on the things you would like to do differently. Together, we can look at things from different perspectives, to help you understand the underlying causes of your difficulties or struggles.

Counselling can provide the opportunity to increase your understanding of self and help you access and develop your own resources while finding a way forward that is right for you.

Everyone has their own reason for working with a counsellor. It may be that you are feeling stressed and showing signs of depression, anxiety or panic attacks. Some clients come having experienced loss or bereavement, divorce or separation. Others may be suffering many physical problems but with no obvious physical cause. I have a strong interest in working with the connection between body, mind and emotions and the non verbal aspects of communicating and relating.

Maybe you have lost your confidence or you would like to improve your relationship with yourself or others. When stressed some people develop unhealthy habits such as drinking too much alcohol, taking drugs or developing a gambling problem. These habits are often a symptom of an underlying cause. If this sounds familiar then counselling may be of help to you.
