Counselling helps relieve emotional distress, modify ways of thinking and acting, and seeks solutions to problems in a person’s life. Such problems include anxiety, depression, grief, dissatisfaction in work and life, as well as personal, family and work relationships. I provide a warm, empathic, authentic and non-judgemental space where you can talk confidentially about the issues you face and help support you in coming to terms with them. I offer a free initial session for us to meet, see how we get along and explore the relevance of us working together.
Psychotherapy addresses emotional crises and mental health problems along with existential issues such as a sense of purpose and meaning, our fundamental aloneness and our inevitable mortality and that of others we love. Psychotherapy often involves exploring our past history including relationships with parents (and siblings), developmental failures, major life events and traumas. Being understood and accepted for who you really are in the psychotherapeutic relationship, helps you overcome negative behaviour patterns and debilitating feelings (e.g. anxiety and depression), allowing you to move more healthily and soulfully in your life, now and in the future.
