Why talk to me?I provide counselling for anxiety, couples counselling, relationship, anger and bereavement counselling. I am a specialist addictions counsellor for food, gambling drugs, alcohol and OCD.
I coach students and professionals to prepare essays/reports and to do presentations and job interviews.
You will have counselling in a friendly place where you feel understood and supported to find a way forwards that fits with what you want for yourself.
You will always have a cup of tea, a warm welcome and feel at home in a room that feels part of a garden with light, air, plants and crystals.
As a BACP Accredited counsellor, I offer a safe, confidential, ethical and effective practice.
I talk to anyone anywhere in the world using electronic contact via Skype, telephone, e-mail or Skype instant messaging facility . I am trained in on-line counselling and have found it surprisingly effective.
Home visits and concessionary work can be arranged where this is necessary.
To be happier
I invite you to work collaboratively with me to achieve a happier life style, with positive direction and a sense of satisfaction with life.
To make sense of things
We will use our conversation to give you the chance to express yourself, through feeling and sensitive exploration of your life experiences and to make sense of your self and gain the capacity to live comfortably with yourself.
To sort out relationships
I work with individuals and couples in relationship. It is in relationships that we see who we are and this is where much of our happiness and unhappiness is found. Many of our significant choices are connected to the way other people affect our lives. I work hard to support individuals as they rebuild their relationship and make this an opportunity for personal growth.
Thinking and feeling
As we set about working together you will no doubt identify aspects of thinking and behaviour that you may want to change and we can then develop a plan for what to do to implement these changes over a period of time.
Fears, Obsessions and Addictions
Some people are caught up in fears they dont understand or obsessions to food, gambling or alcohol and drugs. The life they want is displaced and their thinking is disrupted by the new priorities. They suffer from the consequences they cannot control. These situations can turned around and I invite you to work with me to find out what went wrong and re-establish your sense of life and the directions you want to take.
You may like to look at the www.therecoverclinic.co.uk if you are concerned with issues around food. They support the work I do with food issues.
Body and Mind
The healing process works to enhance your sense of physical presence, working with the way any emotional pain, anxiety or depression has been felt in the body, the way your body expresses itself as a result of trauma or illness.
Goals and Aspirations
We will find time to clarify, what your directions, values and passions are so that your plans for the future see you getting to the place you want to go to.
