The idea of coming to counselling might seem daunting, challenging or stigmatising, but if you’re reading this page perhaps you have reached a stage in your life where you feel you need some professional support and you may be ready to take that first brave step towards exploring what has brought you to therapy at this time in your life.
Counselling is about exploring your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. You might want to gain awareness or healing about past, present or future events. You might have a sense that you don’t feel right or as you would like to feel. You may be having difficulty making life decisions, or perhaps understanding why the same situations keep happening to you. Sometimes you may not even know exactly what it is that you want to change.
Counselling is not about giving advice, nor is it a conversation with a family member or friend.
I am trained, experienced and skilled in providing counselling. In a confidential setting I will listen to you and accept you as you are and without judgment.
If you have any questions or you would like to receive counselling please feel free to call or contact me here.
“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” Brené Brown
