It is essential that your counsellor is someone with whom you feel safe and able to share important parts of your life with, without fear or judgement. I understand that this can be an incredibly difficult and daunting process.
I am passionate about providing an open and safe environment for you so that you can get the best out of our time together: in order to facilitate this, our initial meeting will be for you to get to know me and for us both to gain a sense of whether you feel comfortable with us working together to help achieve your desired outcomes.
As an integrative therapist, I can work with a number of issues or concerns. You may have something specific you would like to work on in counselling or you may feel unsure of where to start. We can explore this further in your initial session and agree on how we could work together in the future. There is no commitment on your part to arrange further sessions after our initial meeting.
I have several years experience of working with with, but not limited to, issues around depression, anxiety, generalised anxiety disorders, eating disorders, relationships, low self esteem, family issues, loneliness, stress, panic attacks, career and employment, bereavement, self harm, abuse, homophobia, bullying, gender and sexual identity. I am an LGBTQ+ affirmative counsellor and have experience in working with individuals experiencing homophobia, bullying and exploring relationships, gender and sexual identity.
I specialise in providing therapy in the following areas:
