Why have counselling?

 

How happy are you? Not as happy as you would like, perhaps. Understanding how to change that and improve life can feel overwhelming and unachievable. 
 
I can help you to make sense of what you feel and enable you to see your life from a new perspective.
 
By exploring your feelings in a safe and caring environment, you can change the rest of your life.
 
Counselling can be used to deal with more specific emotional issues, such as:
 
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Relationship problems
  • The effects of abuse
  • Bereavement
  • Addiction
  • Lack of direction
  • On-going physical illness
  • Anger and frustration
 
I am a psychodynamic counsellor. This means that I look at issues which you are struggling with currently, in relation to the earliest connections in your life.
 
Often, patterns of emotions and responses are repeated over and over again. By learning to recognise them and how they connect, you can begin to take charge of them and start to change your life.
 
Psychodynamic counselling is a deep, and sometimes challenging, form of therapy but one which provides lasting results.

I work face to face with individuals and couples.     

I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and a UKRCP Registered Independent Counsellor.
