I have a deeply-held belief that people don’t stuff up their lives on purpose, and that we are usually doing the very best we can. In counselling we do deeper work - I believe that when you treat the cause, rather than the symptoms, then often the symptoms just take care of themselves. I’ve seen this happen so many times. My approach is warm, compassionate, and very calm and gentle. Also, we often laugh during my sessions. I specialise in complex work, and love it when I see people healing and growing. That’s when I do my counsellor happy dance :)
Specialist areas: Trauma, abuse, complex grief, survivors of sexual abuse, christian counselling, loss, depression, anxiety, medical issues, relationship counselling, general counselling.
