I am a warm, caring, understanding and empathic person who is hugely passionate about psychotherapy and about helping others come into a place of freedom.
I totally believe in the transforming power of the therapeutic relationship. I have seen it transform my own life and the lives of countless others that I have counselled. I am now in the privileged position of using this passion to help enable and empower others to turn their own lives around as well.
I grew up in a fairly dysfunctional home, I can remember as a young child having feelings of depression, fear, anxiety and stress. These stresses had an impact on my physical and mental health and the feelings and fears never really left me and they would rear their unhelpful ugly head at various moments and inopportune times throughout my adult life.
This then led to severe depression, marriage break up, and all sorts of other emotional and physical problems in my life.
When I embarked on my counselling career it had such a massive impact on my own life that it quite literally turned my life around.
Suddenly, I was seeing the reasons for all my behaviours and understanding my thoughts and my feelings. It was totally overwhelming, but it was also absolutely transformational for me.
I was hooked!
I was so impacted by the things that I was learning and the counselling I myself received, that I went on to become a qualified Psychotherapist.
I have become so passionate in the study and process of psychotherapy that I am constantly undertaking Training courses and CPD (Continuous Professional Development) courses to further improve and build on my training, so that I can be the very best counsellor and the very best me that I can be and this in turn helps with whatever a client may bring to the counselling room.
why do people choose to come for counselling
When the pain of staying the same, becomes greater than the pain of change, then and only then, are we willing to invest in the process of transformation.
So what brings someone to that place of deciding to invest in change?
Just as no two people are the same, no two reasons are the same either. It could be one or indeed several of the reasons listed below, or indeed, it could be something else entirely.
Whatever the reason you've decided that you need or wish to come, you've already taken a huge first step.
Take the next step now and make contact with me and let's see if together we can work towards your goal and find some freedom.
With that in mind, I offer a free 30 minute 'intro' session. This session is there for you to ask any questions you may want to ask me and is offered to help us both decide if we would be a 'good fit' to work together.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Please go to my contact page and either phone me, send me a text or e-mail me and I will get back to you as soon as possible, (usually within 24 hours).
