People come to counselling for many reasons. You may be experiencing a major transition in your life such as the birth of a child, returning to work after maternity leave, redundancy, a career change or retirement. Others may come wishing to gain a deeper understanding of themselves. Events in our childhood can have a great influence on our adult lives, especially in terms of how we relate to others. Counselling provides a unique opportunity to explore deep rooted and unhelpful patterns, allowing you to move forward with a greater sense of wellbeing. Understanding the past and how it has shaped you can help you to live more fully in the present.
I draw upon a range of models in my work, including psychodynamic, developmental psychology, cognitive behavioural therapy, coaching and attachment theory. I offer counselling on both a short term or longer term basis, depending on what most fits your needs.
