WHY COUNSELLING?

As a counsellor I believe in and have personal experience of the power of an open, honest, warm and safe space to talk and be heard.

​It can be easy to believe that the problems and challenges we face in our lives and the emotions that they create such as anxiety depression, grief, uncertainty or anger are feelings that we simply learn to live with, affecting our everyday lives  We can often feel confused and uncertain about these thoughts and feelings; reaching out for support can be daunting but is the first step on a journey of self-understanding and is a sign of inner strength, the ability to know when we need support.

​Every client has an individual story and I will work with you in a collaborative manner to provide a supportive, non-judgemental environment that allows you to be open and honest about the difficulties you face. Together we will create a safe and confidential space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings and to grow in self-belief and understanding. This growing knowledge can support you to make different choices allowing you to move forward with your life at a pace and in a manner that is right for you. 

Counselling can be a chance to talk and explore your thoughts, but can also empower you to change unhelpful thoughts or behaviour patterns.
