Counselling and Psychotherapy
Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful parts of us.
Counselling and Psychotherapy Services
I offer a warm, respectful, safe space where you will be listened to. You may feel overwhelmed, stressed or worried. Anxiety may be impacting on your ability to carry out everyday tasks. Maybe you are struggling with difficult family issues, a bereavement or you’ve experienced abuse. Perhaps you are feeling restless or lost and unsure of where you fit in the world. I offer counselling and psychotherapy for a wide range of issues.
Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy
Child and adolescent psychotherapy aims to understand feelings that are not always possible to speak about out loud. Children and adolescents can understand this through drawing, painting and talking about their experiences.
Younger children play in therapy. The therapy seeks to look beyond the surface emotions, behaviours and relationship difficulties so that they can better understand themselves. Through building a relationship in therapy children and adolescents can start to make sense of their experience.
My services are child-led and aim to uphold the emotional and psychological wellbeing of the child. Services can be short or long-term and this is usually decided after the initial assessment or within the first few sessions.
Psychotherapy can help towards gaining a deeper insight into emotions, behaviour and relationships. It helps to recognize and understand underlying experiences and the self. It can be both short term and long term but it is not usually less than six sessions. Confidentiality and developing a consistent relationship are fundamental to the work which is collaborative between both parties.
Counselling can help with a range of difficulties that are presenting in your life now. It is generally shorter term and can help you to understand feelings of anxiety, panic, low mood, phobias and other life events as well as other difficulties. You will be listened to empathically and the process will help towards facilitating change, without offering advice or direction.
