Life can sometimes throw us curve balls when we least expect them; a bereavement, a job loss, stress, anxiety, family issues, losing a pet, ill health or just feeling sad to name a few. When this happens it can sometimes have an overwhelming impact on how we are living our lives. Talking to friends/family never quite seems to help us as they often suggest solutions or never really seem to "hear" what we are saying.
This is a time when counselling could perhaps benefit you.
I offer a safe, warm, peaceful space, in my home, where you can come to explore the curve ball you’ve been thrown. Often that one incident has triggered memories and emotions that have been hidden away in us or we thought we had dealt with and they may have re surfaced or we just might not be able to work out why we "don’t feel quite right".
The counselling style I use is Integrative, which means your therapy will be tailored to your needs. Counselling is a collaborative, encouraging, warm and hopeful process. You may want time limited work or you may want the freedom to explore much of your life and work open ended. The work is about you and what your needs are.
I am an accredited therapist with over ten years experience. I have worked with children, young people and adults both in my Private Practice and for several charities. There are not many issues that I have not worked with. Some include: Loss, work related stress, bereavement, adjusting to life with children, coping with carers responsibilities, loss of a beloved pet, abuse, illness, sexual abuse in adulthood and childhood, poverty, loss of a child, separation and divorce.
I am currently specialising in Psychosexual and Relationship therapy as I am doing post graduate training with the London Diploma in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy. I can work with couples and individuals experiencing psychosexual issues.
Please feel free to contact me for any further details.
