There are different styles of talking therapy.
Finding the right counsellor for you, do you get on, could you tell this person all you need to without feeling like there is a pressure, could you build a therapeutic relationship
Once you have found the right counsellor for you, you can work with them to start building a professional relationship.
I'm a person-centred counsellor which looks at you as a whole person and what is going on for you. I work to fit each of my client’s needs, such as solution-focused, CBT, Trauma-Focused, art therapy.
Counselling with me is 1- 2 - 1, face to face, phone or online.
I accept you as you are.
Having someone to talk to that isn't related or a friend can be a hard and thought-provoking, but also a breath of fresh air.
I try to see the world through your eyes, in us working together we will spend a lot of time exploring what is going on for you in your life.
I offer a warm, safe, non-judgemental, confidential space. Where it allows you to discuss what it is you are having difficulties with "a lot on your plate".
It can feel overwhelming and frustrating because everything has been locked away for so long and you don't know where to start or something has just happened and you need to explore your expectations.
I have helped many unique individuals with all sorts of minor to complex needs.
I know when you start counselling that it can feel nerve-racking until you have started talking, the build-up leaves you with all sorts of sensation and feelings that you will not be able to handle them
I am here to help you work through those feelings, making it easier to handle.
You are the expert of your life (you just don't know it yet).
Counselling is far from "one pill fixes all", counselling is a way to offload and I am here to make sure you are happy and comfortable within our professional relationship.
I agree and abide by the strict code of ethics set out by the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).
If you want to know more please contact me for more information, or free 20-minute phone consultation to discuss what it is you need counselling for.

I don't set the number of sessions, as there could be a lot that you bringing with you and we would need to build a therapeutic relationship we will work at your pace and after 6 sessions we will review to see how you think the sessions are going.
