We sometimes think that we are the only ones struggling, that everyone else seems so sorted. What are we doing wrong? The truth is, everyone struggles from time to time, but people find it hard to admit that they need to talk. They may think they are moaning, being selfish or boring people if they raise their issues with friends and family. Facing up to your worries is the first step in overcoming them, and while friends and family can offer great support, the counselling relationship is very special, as the counsellor has no preconceptions about who you are and will not try and impose their own agenda.
I am here to help you feel safe enough to explore things that you may not have dared to before. I will support you in the challenges this may bring for you, and through this journey of self-discovery, you may begin to experience the empowerment that comes from true self-awareness. Having faith in yourself to overcome whatever life throws at you is an incredible feeling, and we will work together to try and get you there.
I'm currently working towards a diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling, so I work with a range of different approaches which are tailor-made to the client and their needs. I studied Psychology at university, volunteered for The Samaritans for a number of years, and am a professional singer. I have a particular interest in how we deal with grief and loss, social media's effect on mental health, and anxiety around public speaking and performances.
