About counselling

Counselling provides you with a private and supportive space to explore whatever issues you may be experiencing. You will be met with a sensitive, empathic and curious approach to enable you to gain a deeper understanding of your personal situation.

An initial session provides an opportunity to discuss your circumstances and issues and explore the goals and outcomes you may be hoping for from therapy. I will answer any questions you may have about the counselling process and how we  may work together.

The duration of therapy depends on the nature of your issues and needs. I offer both short and long-term counselling. For some people, short term counselling (up to 8 sessions) is extremely beneficial. For others, a longer duration of therapy may be required to provide the space to explore issues and the opportunity to make changes and work at a deeper level. We will review your progress and how we are working together at regular intervals to make sure your goals of therapy are being met.

I have extensive experience of working with clients regarding their relationships. The relationship you have with yourself, with your partner or with your family are vital to one’s emotional health and wellbeing. Relationships past and present can impact what we think and how we feel about ourselves and the patterns we find ourselves in and the choices we make. Exploring the relational patterns you find yourself in can enable you to gain more insight, see things from a different perspective and enhance the quality of the relationship.
