If you're stuck in upsetting emotions, thoughts and habits, counselling could help you nurture a more helpful, kind and aware way to paddle your canoe. Being listened to and mindfully exploring the emotional processes we can all get lost in form the bedrock of my approach to therapy. I regularly use creative methods to help slow things down, clarify what's going on and open up healing possibilities. While counselling is inherently balancing, learning additional stress management methods could also help you cultivate an aware inner peace.
Counselling could help you take positive steps towards:
Healing emotional pain and conflict.
Building strengths and understanding.
Getting on better with yourself.
Improving your relationships.
Living a fuller and richer life.
While I've got many years of experience working with university students, graduates and early career professionals, I enjoy working with people of all ages, backgrounds and identities. Wherever you come from, I'm interested in your story and exploring ways to help you move from stuckness towards freedom.
'Though you can't go back
and make a new beginning,
you can start from now and
make a brand-new ending'
'You were flexible, understanding and patient.'
‘Really valued being able to explore and understand things more.’
‘The intensity of anger I was feeling has lessened significantly.’
'I can cope better even though life is still very stressful.'
'A valuable experience which was a great help to me.'
It's good to talk
