If you are experiencing a difficult or distressing time in your personal or working life it can be helpful to talk to a qualified counsellor. I provide a friendly and empathic approach to counselling, working alongside you to help you come to terms with aspects of your life and find positive ways forward. You may have experienced a recent sad or traumatic event, or experiencing difficult circumstances/relationships which you are finding hard to cope with. Or sometimes challenging and complex feelings such as anger, frustration, anxiety, depression or a deep sense of loss may be difficult to understand and work through. Or perhaps you would just like to gain a sense of yourself and regain some control in your life.
My primary concern in therapy is to create a warm and respectful relationship that would help you feel safe to express your concerns as openly as you can.
My approach is informed by various bodies of therapeutic knowledge including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Compassion Focused Therapy, Person Centred Counselling and Mindfulness, enabling me to adapt my approach to suit your needs. I also have a BSc (Hons) in Counselling and I am a Registered member of the British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists.
Working from my home in Weston-super--Mare, North Somerset, my therapy room is comfortable, peaceful and private and I am able to offer flexible appointments.
I also offer counselling via Skype.
Both short term and long term confidential counselling is available.
