"At times life can feel difficult & we can lose sight of the way we want to go"
It may be a cliché but we are all on our own individual journey through life. We connect and dis-connect in our relationships with others throughout our lives, which can happen in many ways, including being mutually agreed and helpful, controlled and harmful or sudden and unexpected.
We all experience Love and Loss in our lives, and at times, we may need to reach out and seek help in our journeys.
We may need help to find out how we really feel and who we really are or would like to be.
Counselling can offer an impartial and non-judgemental space to discover our true feelings, the place we are at and where we may be trying to get to or need to go.
When life feels difficult and we lose sight of the way we want to go, counselling can help us relocate who we are or want to be on our journey.
Seeing or feeling life with a different perspective or lens can help us find a different or new inner landscape and find an intimate relationship with ourselves, which can be ultimately empowering.
If you choose to work with me as your counsellor, I will value your uniqueness, listen to you and witness your story.
As a counsellor, I have learnt that people value the emotional space to share their fears, wounds and hopes.
As your counsellor, I will not tell you what to do or give you the answers but rather I will 'walk alongside you' without judgement. Metaphorically, as I 'walk alongside you', I may hold up a torch as you explore along an individual path of self discovery. I always aim to work in a way that shows compassion.
I am qualified (with Distinction) as a Humanistic and Integrative counsellor with BCPC (Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling) and I can adapt my approach depending on your needs.
Since November 2016, I have worked therapeutically with adults who have been experiencing difficulties, including depression, stress, anxiety, relationship worries, abuse, childhood trauma, suicidal thoughts, self-harm, loss, and bereavement.
During my work with some people, we have found that creativity by using art and nature can help expression of self-awareness. Also, during my work with some people, we have found that exploring current and/or early relationships has been useful to understand how some relational patterns have been unhelpful.
