Counselling offers you a safe place to talk, share problems and explore thoughts and emotions. It is a collaborative process with the aim of helping you to deal with and overcome issues that are causing pain or making you feel uncomfortable.
Counselling tends to focus on the ‘here and now’, what is happening in your life and how you are feeling at the moment. Counsellors are there to support you; they will not normally give advice, but will help you to find your own insight and understanding of your problems.
Counselling can be short term, based on an agreed number of sessions; or sometimes longer term. Sessions usually last an hour and take place weekly.

Approach to therapy is based on psychodynamic principles and theories. Incorporates CBT principles as appropriate. Each individual is unique. Special interests in facilitating assertiveness skills and person-centred counselling skills training.
I offer an integrative approach that draws on a variety of perspectives and theories (humanistic, existential and analytic) depending on your needs and sensibilities. But regardless of the chosen theoretical framework, I believe the success of therapy is primarily dependent on a secure therapeutic relationship - developed through acceptance, trust and safety.
