What sort of issues can I help you with?

People come to counselling for a myriad of reasons. These can be specific to a particular area of your life or perhaps about a more general sense of unease that everything is not alright in your world. Talking to a counsellor offers you the opportunity to talk freely about whatever is making life difficult for you in a fully supportive and non-judgemental space.

I am here to listen to you and work with you to help you overcome the challenges that are making your life difficult. We will work together to build your understanding and awareness so that you can find a positive way forward.

What to expect when you come to counselling

Therapy is a rewarding process that can help you make positive changes in many different areas of your life. However, it can feel a little daunting at the beginning when it is all new and unknown. With this in mind, it may be helpful to understand how the process works – knowing what to expect can help you to feel more comfortable and at ease.
