There is tremendous value in talking through your ideas, problems, and feelings with a psychotherapist who has the experience, training and expertise to understand what you are going through, and help you create a plan to turn your life around.
As a counsellor, psychotherapist and hypnotherapist, I would like to help you improve your emotional well being, enhance your ability to engage in interpersonal relationships and to empower you with the tools necessary to take control of your life.
I would offer you the opportunity to talk in confidence with me, and my only aim would be to listen to you carefully and without judgment, so that with understanding, I can support you as fully as possible in your search to find how best to move forward, in the areas of your life you choose to explore. Your decision to begin counselling or psychotherapy is an indication of your strength, hope, and a deeply held belief that problems can become more manageable and that life can feel more fulfilling.
In therapy, together we'll create a relationship to help you discover and change patterns of feeling, thinking, and relating that may be causing you to feel stuck, confused, or overwhelmed. In a safe and trusting environment, our conversations will unfold in the space and time you need to get to know yourself better and become free to follow your life goals and desires.
