My Services

Counselling

I could help you to identify what your problem is, and assist you by finding constructive ways to deal with situations. Examples of difficulties which counselling may help in a small number of sessions are:

• a significant disappointment

• a rocky patch in a special relationship

• work or family challenges

• adjusting to life events such as a death or illness, living with a health condition or medical diagnosis

You can get help to understand your experience and to make changes that will help with a particular situation.

Psychotherapy

PathI could help you deal with how past events and relationships impact on you today. These may be difficulties which have been around for some time. You may be troubled about an aspect of yourself and therapy could address your conscious and unconscious motivations or wishes. Finding words to understand a particular experience gives you more choices about how to think, feel and act. Given time psychotherapy can help you change unwanted and unhelpful habits. Depending on what you’re wanting, therapy can help to achieve a greater sense of who you are, of being able to feel effective in the things you do and to feel secure in yourself.
