Therapeutic Counselling

Compassion & safe space

I offer wisdom, compassion, warm acceptance, and a non-judgmental safe space for you to explore your concerns. As a result, you may discover better coping strategies, develop resilience, and find your own meaning to affirm who you are at your best and so move towards greater wholeness and psychological maturity. 

Empowerment & 
greater purpose

As well as helping you in what may be the initial cause of you seeking counselling, I am interested in empowering you to use it as a turning point towards personality growth, greater purpose, and satisfaction in your life. 

Finding hope when life is tough

I have used counselling skills and therapeutic communication to support people for many years with health issues, loss, bereavement, and mental health challenges. I can help you in making sense of what is going on, accepting what can’t be changed, working on what can be changed, and finding new hope to take you forward.

Approach & Assurance

I work mainly within the person centred approach. This assumes I am not the expert on your life- you are! My expertise is in creating an effective, safe, authentic relationship with you that allows you to flourish. Working in a person centered way means I focus on your agenda and listen with empathy and compassion in an accepting way without judgment. By hearing you with focused attention in this way and interjecting with you I seek to empower you to find your own solutions and to grow in your resilience, self regard and clarity of your unique value and purpose. 
I will also draw on other therapeutic models where appropriate such as Psychodynamic because childhood experiences and attachments to significant others, dreams and unconscious affects can be important. Cognitive behaviour insights such as weighing up the evidence to challenge and change our self-talk, exploring alternative possibilities which are less catastrophic than we are fearing, can help with anxiety. Existential therapy with its drawing on facing life in its harsh reality, squaring up to our mortality and death anxiety, resulting in making meaning and exploring how to live life well, are also useful. 

  I promise you respect, empathy, and impartial help whatever your background, lifestyle, beliefs, ethnicity, or sexuality. I am registered with the British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists and work within their ethical codes and standards. No religious worldview is assumed, imposed, or required to receive this kind of humanistic counselling which is universally recognised and universally applied.
