THEN REACH OUT
If you think counselling may help, get in touch with me. We can discuss over the phone or by email whether counselling is right for you. If I’m not the right person for you I can help point you in the right direction so that you can find the support you need.
People come to counselling for a range of reasons:
Some come because they feel unhappy with the direction their life is heading.
Some are struggling with anxiety, stress or depression, or because they feel they are reaching breaking point and are no longer able to cope.
Some are having difficulties in relationships, either at work or at home.
Some have big decisions to make, and want to ensure they're making them for the right reasons.
Some come to deal with the impact of addiction, phobias or other mental health issues.
Some have a physical health condition that is making their life difficult to live well.
Some come to talk about the present, some the future, and some the past.
You may recognise yourself in the descriptions above, or you may not.
Either way, counselling is a space where you can explore what's troubling you with someone who won't judge you or give you advice, but can help you to make sense of yourself and your world.
In our first session, which I offer at a reduced rate, we will discuss what is troubling you, and what you hope to achieve and change in your life. We will also talk about whether I'm the right person to help you, and if I'm not, I can help you to find that right person.
For more information, call or email me.
If you’re here, you’ve probably looked through a bunch of counsellors’ websites with pretty pictures and similar phrases, so what makes me different?
Tailored, individual support
As someone who’s worked in the public, charity, and private sectors, I am able to tailor the support I offer to each individual client. In our first session we will discuss your aims and hopes, and how we might meet these together.
I put you, the client, at the centre of every decision. For example, I don’t demand that sessions are held weekly, or that we work together for a certain amount of time. I will explain what I think will work best, but ultimately you are in charge.
Sometimes clients worry that their counsellor will be shocked or unable to deal with what they bring. Working in inner-city London schools for a decade, and in a hospice for three years, has left me pretty hard to shock. I can commit to being with and working with whatever you bring, without judgement and without fear.
