Benefits of therapy

As an experienced counsellor, I can help you to resolve your issues and move forward to a healthier future

How it works

The relationship between client and therapist is at the heart of counselling.  I will be offering you genuineness; acceptance and understanding in a totally confidential safe space and this help you to feel valued and empowered to explore difficult issues.  I can offer you short term work (6 sessions) or, for more deep seated issues, we can work longer term.

What happens in a session

A talking therapy where you are in control and decide what you would like to talk about at your pace – you will remain in control at all times – you will not be forced to confront issues that feel uncomfortable.  Through counselling, I can help you to make links that can help you to view everything in a new light.  I have helped many clients to move forward to a more positive future and I would like to help you too
