I am an experienced, qualified therapeutic counsellor offering 1:1 sessions from a comfortable, quiet room in Street. I set up my independent practice in 2012 and in that time I have successfully supported people through a wide range of difficulties, some of which include anxiety, low self esteem, low self confidence, depression, loss, trauma and relationship difficulties.
I believe there are times in our lives when we can all do with some support. I myself experienced counselling when I went through some difficult events in my life and it was this experience which helped me to recognise the life changing benefits that counselling can have. Following this experience, I went on to train as a counsellor so that I could support others when they needed it.
As your counsellor, I will help you by providing support without judgement. I commit to fully listening to you so that I understand what you are experiencing from your perspective and to help you to identify any changes you wish to make whilst also supporting you to implement those changes.
I have a love of nature and believe it to be healing when we take the opportunity to connect to our natural surroundings. I also find exercise (walking, cycling and yoga are my favourites) and meditation help keep me healthy both emotionally and physically. However, I’ve been on quite a journey to get to the point where I know what works for me and I’ve definitely had times when I’ve needed the encouragement of others to keep me motivated. If you feel you need support to find ways of introducing and managing your own self-care routine, we can include this within our counselling sessions.
