From time to time, we all experience difficulties. Sometimes those difficulties become overwhelming stress, anxiety, depression are just a few. When this happens, it is possible that talking therapy can help. It can be an opportunity for you to talk through thoughts and feelings in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space. With that support you may find it easier to work towards the changes that you wish to make.
I believe that every individual is impacted by life difficulties in a completely unique way, no two people will experience the same issue the same way. My role as a therapist is to first understand the unique nature of your difficulties and how these are impacting upon you in your daily life. Then once I feel I have an understanding of your story, I will plan my interventions and suggest strategies that I believe may be beneficial for you.
I am able to combine a range of theoretical models and techniques to create a tailored approach to meet your specific needs.
I believe that there is no one set way of understanding human behaviour or distress. We all are unique and the challenges we face are part of being human.
Most importantly, I work on establishing a trusting therapeutic relationship, enabling us to explore the concerns you bring as well as your thoughts and feelings. My experience has taught me that it is possible to achieve this working at a distance.
Counselling can support you to become more self-aware, alleviate distress and find alternative ways of coping. It can also demonstrate that you actually do have the power and ability to create the sort of positive changes you want to see in your life.
