Why Counselling?

You may be looking for counselling to talk about..

  • Feeling anxious and/or depressed

  • Difficulties in a relationship or finding relationships difficult

  • Loss or bereavement

  • Workplace issues and/or work-life balance

  • Struggling with identity, purpose or meaning in life

  • Coping with health problems and illness

  • Gender, sexual and relationship diversity issues

  • Lifestyle issues, taking decisions and making changes

  • Experiences of oppression or discrimination

  • Loneliness and social isolation

  • Spirituality, religion and faith issues

  • Low self-confidence, self-esteem and/or motivation

You may want to talk about one of the issues above or something different, you may have several concerns. Everyone is different and comes to counselling with their own history, culture and life story.
I provide person-centred counselling, this therapeutic approach emphasises the uniqueness of every individual and their capacity for personal growth.
I will listen to you in an empathic, authentic and non-judgmental way and respect the fact that you are your own expert. I will work along side you to help you find your potential to realise any changes you may wish to make.
