Tyne and Wear
I am a fully qualified Psychotherapeutic counsellor and gained my qualification at the Northern Guild for Counsellors and Psychotherapists, one of the most prestigious organisations in England. I initially qualified as a hypnotherapist and further developed my skills in Person Centred therapy and Transactional Analysis (TA) therapy. I work very much in the here and now and pride myself on being an excellent relational and intuitive therapist.
Counselling gives a client an opportunity to talk, in confidence, with a skilled practitioner who will help them explore any issue or decision which is necessary to improve their quality of life.
Issues can be very diverse; bereavement, loss, stress, anxiety, carer issues, abuse, relationship difficulties, sexuality, work related situations, depression, eating distress, trauma or lack of self-confidence, in fact anything which is affecting someone living their life.
The services I provide offer first and foremost, a safe space for my clients. A warm and trusting environment that which provides you with the comfort of knowing you can speak freely. You will be listened to in a non-judgemental and empathetic manner. This will be a space where boundaries will be set for the benefits of both parties, giving you a sense of clarity from the very first session.
Sessions may consist of simply talking on a one to one basis, focusing on your presenting issue or utilising various interventions to help evoke and resolve some of your deepest thoughts and fears. The pace will be set by you, giving you the opportunity to regularly review our therapeutic contract, allowing you to maintain a clear understanding of the presenting issue and help maintain a sense of direction towards your goals throughout your journey.
I believe we all internalise emotions at times and this can feel like a pressure cooker, not knowing where to turn or how to deal with it. If we can remind ourselves to normalise this and have the courage to talk about our feelings with a professional, the rewards may prove to be enormous., helping you to find your sense of self and discover the quality of life that you desire.
