Counselling is a process by which clients are invited to look honestly at their behaviour and lifestyle and make certain decisions about how they want to modify the quality of their life. In thisframework counsellors provide support and warmth yet care enough to challenge and confront so that clients will be able to take the action necessary to bring about significant change.
As a therapist, I believe in the healing power of talking to understand the issues and difficulties we face as human beings. This can be used to identify positive steps to enable greaterself-acceptance and confidence to work through the concerns that are causing anxiety and distress. To do this, my aim is to create a safe and supportive environment in which we can explore experiences, thoughts and relationships which may have led or contributed to your present feelings.

Counselling is constructive talking, through which stress and emotional difficulties can be relieved. Always in complete confidence, counselling offers a confidential listening service from a neutralstandpoint and without judgement or condemnation.
