Counselling helps find solutions to, and provide relief from negative feelings, life difficulties and problems. Counselling can help by identifying and changing ways of thinking and patterns of behaviour providing new options in how you live. It can give you the opportunity to off load your concerns and experience relief from those worries. My approach is to work with you and find the way that benefits you most. Successful counselling is built on a quality therapeutic relationship. I build that relationship by treating everything we talk about as confidential, being honest, genuine, respectful and non-judgemental. This will enable trust between us and in the counselling process. This will enable you to explore your feelings and thoughts at your own pace and in a safe space. I have experience of working with a wide variety of client difficulties including anxiety, depression, loss and bereavement, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem and self-confidence to stress and work related difficulties. I also have experience of working with people suffering chronic health issues including terminal illness, and their relatives and friends. I am a qualified counsellor/therapist and am on the Accredited Register of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP Reg No 206220). All my work is supervised in accordance with the BACP guidelines. I work to the BACP ethical framework and fully adhere to its code of ethics.
