Counselling & psychotherapy gives you a confidential, safe and non-judgemental space to explore your feelings, thoughts, behaviours and concerns. Suitable for anybody, counselling and psychotherapy are effective ways to work through an issue in your life, to come to terms with something difficult or to get to know and understand yourself better.
It is often hard to do this alone and working with a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist can make all the difference between healing or staying stuck.
What to Expect
You can expect to be provided with a non-judgemental approach by a respectful, open and genuine person. I will not give advice, direction or solutions to problems or issues but will help you gain insight and new perspectives. Each session lasts 1 hour and you will meet with me usually on a weekly basis. You may terminate therapy at any time.
Counselling and Psychotherapy Issues Include :
- Relationship problems
- Life Changes
- Anger management
- Addiction Issues
What is the difference between counselling and psychotherapy?
Counselling is usually focused on more immediate or crisis issues such as a relationship breakup, bereavement or work stress. It tends to be shorter term.
Psychotherapy looks at deeper more long-term issues or patterns which are affecting your present life and which often have roots in the past. Psychotherapy helps you to explore what has shaped you as a person and to free yourself from past conditioning and experiences which are not helpful to you now. It tends to be deeper work over a longer period.
Counselling and psychotherapy often overlap and are used interchangeably. I am trained as both a counsellor and a psychotherapist and will work with your in whatever way best suits your needs.

Each session is an hour long. In the first session we will identify the areas you would like to work on and how I might support you in this. If we both feel we can work successfully together, we will then usually agree a time to meet weekly.
