If you are worried about something, want to talk through the issues that are affecting you, or have identified there is something you want to change, I can use my skills and experience to help you consider and understand what is happening in your life.
I provide a safe and confidential space in a beautiful, tranquil environment that will support your exploration.
You may be struggling with persistent worries, depression, relationships, the effect of abuse, anger management, workplace difficulties or bereavement. You may be distressed by childhood experiences or struggling with low self- esteem and lack of confidence. We live in uncertain times and you may be worried about losing your job, struggling to find one or unhappy in the workplace. I am particularly experienced in working with people who are gender variant and in helping you to find your true identity.
Therapy can help you to make changes in your relationships or your behaviour and to identify repeated patterns that might be keeping you stuck. It can help you through a crisis or difficult patch in your life and can enable you to make permanent changes and lead a happier, more fulfilled life.
How do I choose a therapist?
Some considerations and suggestions to help you make a choice:
1. Are they professionally qualified and how long have they been in practice? What are their qualifications? It is vital that your psychotherapist or counsellor is highly skilled and able to assist you with your concerns.
2. Anyone can call themselves a counsellor or psychotherapist because the profession is not regulated. Choose someone who belongs to a recognised professional body such as UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) or BACP (British Association for Counselling or Psychotherapy)
3. Do they state that they adhere to a recognised code of ethics?
4. Do they undertake regular Continuing Professional Development
5. Do they offer a written contract which outlines administrative and business arrangements?
