About this Service
I’ve worked as a counsellor since 1995 and offer a safe space for exploration and self understanding. Counselling can be long or short term and it may feel daunting when trying to choose the right therapist. I offer prospective clients an informal 30 minute video call meeting in which we can decide if we can work together. Therapy isn’t a quick fix although sometimes the work can happen quite fast, especially if you’re ready to explore deeply your internal world and the impact of events and experience on that internal world. I work with feelings, experiences, memories, beliefs, thoughts, dreams, wishes, body expressions and the breath: all are material for therapy and all are relevant. Sometimes it can be helpful work in an expressive way, using art or movement and sometimes the need is for a more meditative style of work or for us to focus on some relaxation strategies alongside the exploration in order for the work to be effective.
I work online using video calling so you can access me from home without having to travel.
