About me

At the beginning of our work we will establish some aims and focuses of working together. We can choose to be goal-oriented if that appeals to you or we can see what evolves over time, whichever way you would prefer to work. Some common aims for therapy include being happier, finding meaning, becoming healthier, coping with anxiety or low feelings, adapting to change or just managing life better.

 

Starting counselling can be daunting. In sessions I will always be accepting and professional, making sure you feel safe. I have worked with a broad spectrum of presenting issues and difficulties, and I am able to help you understand your difficulties, accept what you can’t change and make key changes where you can. I will always be reassuring and friendly, but I’ll also challenge you when it’s appropriate. I won’t ever rush you in our work but I also won’t let the sessions drift by without finding ways forward. We will also regularly check in with our progress together which is an important part of therapy. My clients really benefit from working with me, and I hope this will be the case for you if you choose to go ahead.
