Life can be tough, even more so if you’re experiencing mental health issues such as anxiety or depression. It can be hard to talk about what you’re feeling, especially if you feel like people won’t understand.
Counselling provides you with a safe space to explore your feelings and reclaim your life.
While mental health services through the NHS tend to offer a limited number of sessions or are only available in crisis situations, you are able to see me for as many sessions as you need when you need.
A counsellor should make you feel safe. I spent the first 20 years of my career in children’s homes, working with some of the most troubled and traumatised young people imaginable. I’ve seen what a difference it makes to be heard without judgement and given the time and space to unpack your feelings at your own pace.
I am qualified (BSc in Psychology (First-class), Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, BACP Registered Member, enhanced DBS certificate) but, above all, I have experience.
Where we meet
If you’ve been to counselling through the NHS, you may have experienced sitting in busy waiting rooms at health centres or a local community centre. This can feel clinical.
I’ve deliberately created a space for you that feels nothing like this.
Your counselling sessions with me will take place in my beautiful garden summer house. No-one will even know that you’ve come for counselling as the setting is so discreet.
