About Counselling

Counselling offers professional support in a quiet, private, safe and non-judgemental environment. It allows you to explore sensitive issues and clarify what you find difficult and challenging, bringing into your consciousness what may be unseen or unknown about your life. Counselling allows you to find a new understanding of your thoughts, feelings and actions, helping you to become more informed and then able to make new choices and changes.

Being in a relationship can at times produce conflicting and confusing patterns of behaviour which are hard to understand and live with. Counselling can help you understand and change these patterns and see how they unconsciously play out throughout your life, affecting your relationships and, in fact, all areas of your life.

Some of the issues I can help and support you with –

– Relationship issues
– Divorce and Separation
– Times of conflict and change
– Family breakdown
– Parenting and step parenting
– Lack of confidence and low self-esteem
– Grief, Bereavement, Loss and Separation
– Pet Bereavement
– Eating Disorders
– Anxiety, Depression, Stress

At a time of crisis counselling can support you and help you to become more informed of your own experiences and relationships.  Expressing and exploring your feelings in counselling can help to bring insight and understanding of your problems and help you to make changes that will bring healing and happiness.  We often come to crossroads or transitions in our lives, where we find the need to explore what’s in our hearts and what speaks to us individually. What do you need to change to help you find new growth in yourself and new beginnings?

If you cannot find a way to tell the story of your life, your story will tell you through your dreams and symptoms and you may find yourself acting in ways you don’t understand. You may feel sad or angry, lost and confused. Having someone to listen helps you to find yourself and leads you to a fuller happier way of being.

I feel passionately about helping my clients to flourish and grow enabling them to feel better from having their own individual story listened to.
