Counselling BloomsburyIt takes courage to search for a counsellor and you have just just taken that first step. Once you have booked in and attended your first session things will start to feel easier. I offer a friendly, warm welcome to help you feel at ease when you come to see me. The offices I work from are discreet, allowing a high level of anonimity.
People often spend months or years struggling with their issues before finally doing something about it, allowing their negative thoughts and debilitating memories to effect their every day life for far too long. No problem is too small to talk through with a counsellor because anything that is negatively effecting how you feel about yourself in your life is worth resolving.
Part of being human is that we experience difficulties at various points in our lives. Mostly we can deal with these difficulties on our own or with help and support from friends and family, but sometimes we feel overwhelmed by negative feelings or stuck in patterns of behaviour we feel powerless to change. We may feel very alone with our complicated thoughts and feel trapped by our lives. It's hard to imagine life feeling different to how it is right now, but with help, there is always possiblity to change how you feel for the better.
A significant relationship may have ended and you might need help to make sense of it before being able to move on. I will understand your continued heartache where friends and family have tired of listening.
Whatever your concern, whether it is something you have carried since childhood or a more recent event or trauma, talking to a counsellor will be the best way to work through your issues. I am straight-forward, warm and empathic and will always have your best interests at heart. Together we will get you to a better place in your life.
As your counsellor I will provide a safe, confidential space for you to express yourself and your concerns. I will be listening to you with empathy and kindness and equally will challenge your thoughts and behaviours if they are not benefitting you. I will encourage you to understand yourself more fully and empower you to make choices leading to a happier and more fulfilled you.
I have many years of experience counselling individuals and couples from all walks of life and from all ethinic/religious backgrounds and with all sexual/gender orientations. I like to work with people no matter who they are or what they bring to sessions. I have made it my life's work to help facilitate positive change in my clients - to see them become happier in their own skin.
I am impartial, balanced and fair and would like you to feel better about being you.
