It can take courage to seek counselling.
Finding the counsellor who understands what you need can also feel daunting. I can offer help with a wide spectrum of presenting issues. The counselling philosophy I work with is that we all have the ability to grow and heal; to know what is best for ourselves.
At times this feels impossible; we can feel stuck and lost. Life can feel complicated and it feels like we cannot see a way forward.
- It is up to you what you choose to bring and work with; working at your pace.
- I provide a friendly, warm, empathic and non-judgmental setting, where you can talk in complete confidence.
- How we meet is flexible (and, in part, depends on Lockdown). I work from a studio in Body Matters, Steyning. However at present many of my clients are working with me remotely using FaceTime.
