WHAT IS COUNSELLING ?
and how can it help...
Therapy and counselling is a safe and confidential space for you to talk and connect with a trained professional about any issues and concerns you may have. As your therapist I will help you explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours so you can gain insight and awareness of yourself and of others. Building a relationship for our work is very important to me, this means taking time to listen, empathise and support your needs.
I use a humanistic integrative approach to counselling that can help you overcome personal challenges, and allow you to achieve your individual goals. I adapt my approach to cater to each of my client’s personal needs in order to unlock their full potential. Drawing on theory and interventions from Person Centered counselling, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt and CBT to name a few, I work to each clients needs without a blanket approach to my work.
How it Works -
Starting with an initial consultation which last 15 minutes, this is your chance to share what you need help with, ask any questions and discuss how to move forward. Either by telephone or video call. You can then take time to decide if you want to procede and get in touch at a later date and book a counselling session.

TYPES OF COUNSELLING
Online video -based counselling sessions via either Microsoft Teams or WhatApp video call, working in a quiet and confidential space to explore your reasons for seeking counselling.
Telephone therapy offers appointments with simple access, flexibility, and privacy. Some individuals find it easier to open up about problems without being face to face with a therapist.
