BA (Hons) Degree in Integrative Counselling, Reg MBACP
Hello and a very warm welcome to my website which I hope you will find helpful
I believe there are times for all of us when we feel a little lost, uncertain or stuck. Life can be complicated and at times we all struggle with ourselves, each other and events in our lives. I also believe however, we have the potential to find happiness and a sense of peace both with ourselves and our life. Counselling offers an opportunity to explore and understand what is happening in order to help us move forward. Sometimes, this may involve looking at new ways of relating to others, at times it may support us in accepting things we simply cannot change. Whatever your reason for counselling, I would love to hear from you.
The First Step...
People come to counselling for many reasons; some clear, others unknown. Taking the steps to begin can feel overwhelming and often requires great courage. I aim to ensure that throughout our time together you feel as warmly accepted and supported from our first meeting to our last.
As an integrative counsellor sessions are developed specifically to meet your needs. My aim is for us to work together exploring ways for you to find clarity, new direction, develop inner strength and resources in order to grow a more positive outlook for the future. This may be through discussion but also may include techniques such as art, sand tray or therapeutic writing.
It is important we feel comfortable working together and I offer a free initial 1/2 hour consultation to consider this. Days, times and cost are also agreed at this point. Sessions are offered for 50 minutes in the form of face to face, online or telephone counselling. I am based in Gillingham, Dorset but should you feel more comfortable I am happy to discuss coming to your home or a venue local to you.
My working hours are from 8am until 8pm. Monday to Saturday.
