We all experience stress, anxiety and depression as a natural reaction to life events. Counselling helps when our emotions overwhelm us or when the life stressors are too intense. Counselling provides space to stop and breathe and to look at the messages our mind and body are giving us about our expectations and perceptions of the world around us.
What differentiates my work is the way in which I bring together my life experiences, my previous business career, over 18 years counselling experience and my ongoing professional training and am able to apply them to your situation. I follow the latest research and guidance, and blend this with my intuition, insight and empathy to help you, rather than following a pre-set programme.
My work is flexible, focused on each individual client. People may present with similar issues of stress, anxiety and depression but what works with one client is often different to what works for someone else. I listen empathically to you and help you work out what is behind the difficulties that have brought you to counselling. I can help you develop an understanding of yourself, your values, strengths and beliefs, and help you recognise your authentic self. Then we can explore techniques that may help you and the choices you face.
These are four areas core areas underpin my work:
