I am a Registered Counsellor and an Accredited Member of BACP.
I have been working for many years as a counsellor with particular experience of clients facing relationship and identity issues, as well as those in recovery from addiction and struggling to stay clean.
I also work with clients who were sent away to boarding school. Our work can heal the wounds that often remain, even decades later.
Counselling is a way of uncovering your own answers to the troubles that you face.
I offer you a therapeutic relationship based on compassion, understanding and authenticity. With this as the foundation of our work you can find the courage to look inside yourself. Together we can explore old beliefs and expectations that may still be causing you anxiety, shame or unhappiness. They may be preventing you from getting on with your life and relationships. We can consider if they are as true as you think and, if not, what stops you shaking them off, so that you can take on more realistic beliefs that will help you grow.
I suggest an initial session in which we can talk about what has brought you to counselling. I usually offer a weekly meeting of 50 minutes, initially for 6 weeks, before we review how far we have come and in which direction we want to head.
