How counselling can help

When we are feeling distressed or lost, having someone to talk to - who can help us to understand our experience and feel accepted in it - can bring clarity and enormous relief.

Counselling can open up deep insight into ourselves and our struggles, and help us to find the inner strength and resources to get through difficult situations. 

You may be looking for support to work through painful or confusing emotions, feelings of internal conflict and stuckness or another psychological challenge. I aim to offer you a safe and supportive space in which we can explore together whatever is troubling you, with the hope that we can make it feel more manageable, restore your inner peace and resilience, and find a way forward. 

My working model Transactional Analysis offers a useful framework to explore any challenges that you may be facing, with empathy and self-respect. It is particularly helpful for those wishing to understand areas of difficulty that keep re-emerging, and find a way to break unhelpful patterns that may be holding you back.
