How I work

Counselling gives you a chance to reflect on your life, without the need to pretend everything’s all right. Together, we can gradually uncover the deeper reasons for your current unhappiness and symptoms.  

We would start with a conversation about what’s troubling you and then explore your current situation. I will try to understand and won’t judge you, and we can start to make sense of what’s happening together. 

In the process, you will become more aware of your feelings, what matters to you, and the ways you’ve learned to protect yourself. 

You may see your situation in a new light, start to change how you feel and discover new trust in yourself and in others, so you can get on with your life. Some people feel they are transformed, for others, it’s a more subtle, but usually positive outcome. 

What you tell me will be confidential, in line with the ethics of the BACP - the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, of which I’m a registered member.
