Sharing a problem can be hugely beneficial and counselling provides a safe and regular space for you to talk and explore difficult emotions. It can be a great relief to share your worries and fears with someone who acknowledges your feelings and works towards helping you reach a solution. I see counselling as a relationship where we both work together on the things that may be troubling you in order to bring about the changes you want.
I have experience of working with adults and young people in a variety of settings. I enjoy offering different approaches which I integrate to best match particular needs. I also provide a creative space with a variety of media to use including postcards and miniature figures. Using the arts needs no previous experience, the focus is on self-expression rather than being artistic and is always invitational, not an expectation.
I am an Accredited Counsellor and a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists whose ethical framework I abide by. I have 16 years experience of working with a range of presenting problems including physical, sexual and emotional abuse, self-harm and suicide, panic attacks, trauma, bereavement and loss, depression, identity, life stages, relationship issues, miscarriage, stillbirth and SIDS.
