I am a registered member of the BACP with experience of working with a variety of issues and age groups, as well as over twenty years working with young people in education. I offer both long term and time limited counselling in a situation where we can work together on many challenges that you may be facing.
Counselling can help by exploring some of the roots of present day difficulties and looking at new ways of self acceptance and relating to others. Sometimes it can explore a feeling that something is just 'not right' and you are struggling to connect with others or make the most of opportunities. I have experience in helping people through feelings of loss, or coping with changes in their lives.
I have also worked with those who feel they need to process past experience and trauma in order to move on successfully. In my experience, one of the most important features of one to one counselling is the ability to have a positive experience of relating to others and, the most important factor, allowing the chance of being listened to and understood.
If you would like to find out more and have a talk about how I may be able to help and how we could work together, please email me and I will get back to you as soon as possible. At present, I am working online, but hope to return to both online and face to face counselling soon.Contact me
