I am a supportive, empathic and qualified Person-centred counsellor ,interested in trauma, emotional healing, overcoming anxious thinking and self-empowerment.
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and work with individuals of all ages encouraging participation through creating a safe, secure, confidential and non-judgmental environment. Allowing individuals to explore naturally with a person-centred focus of confidence and development, offering emotional support through active listening, genuine empathy and positive regard. Meeting clients on their level of experiencing with realness and transparency.
I believe that all people are creative and that given the right circumstances, everyone can find their way and self-empower and it Is my hope that through counselling you will find a greater self-understanding and self-awareness that will lead you to a greater sense of wellbeing, freedom and autonomy.
Before becoming a counsellor my original back ground was in the Television and Fashion industry, a working environment that eventually became detrimental to my mental health and wellbeing. The combination of feeling judged or not living up to others expectations created personal anxiety and feelings of isolation, too ashamed to admit my growing self doubt. Keeping my thoughts and feelings inside and slowly becoming depressed.
Believing that poor conditions of worth created during my school years plagued with Dyslexia and negative self-thinking, led me to losing my self and way for some time, until I found an environment safe enough to break my silence.
I understand now that feelings do not need to be avoided or feared, they are part of who we are and that they have a huge impact on how we see ourselves, our life and others.
It is my experiences, warm felt compassion for others and belief in positive change that now drives my work.
Supporting Personal Growth
Seeing a counsellor can help decrease your stress levels by sharing thoughts, fears and anxieties with an experienced professional. Counselling can help gain relief and clarity, helping you to find a healthier way forward. It can help you build healthier relationships through the exploration of relationships in your life.
The exploration of feelings, personal experiencing and repeated patterns in relation to yourself and others will help you discover how the difficulties arose and help you move forward into healthier patterns.
Counselling helps you to identify patterns of behaviour, thoughts and believes that can be mentally and emotionally destructive. By examining the root cause, of destructive thoughts and negative experiencing. With a counsellor you will gain an understanding of why you are feeling the way you are, and together with your therapist, find a healthier way forward.
I understand that revealing your thoughts and feelings to a stranger is not always easy, as a trained counsellor I provide a confidential, non-judgemental and empathic environment where trust can be built, allowing exploration to flow naturally when the time is right for you.
