Counselling and psychotherapy offer the opportunity to explore the aspects of ourselves which lie under the surface in our everyday lives - why we feel, think and behave as we do, what has shaped us, what we need to feel content, fulfilled or motivated. The effect of our experiences may be expressed in feelings of anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, self-harm, anger, suicidal thoughts and stress, in relationship difficulties or workplace issues.
The focus may be a current situation or relationship, a general sense of disquiet or dissatisfaction, or an awareness of a trauma, lack or wound from the past - therapy can be the private, non-judgemental, confidential space in which together we can explore whatever troubles you. It is a process which works best with active participation and commitment, and as part of this process options and choices may come to light, and you may arrive at a deeper understanding and acceptance of yourself. The most valuable insights and solutions are those you discover yourself, and I believe that my role is to assist and support you in that process.
