Life happens and sometimes it’s not always kind, things we thought we had a handle on and believed we could cope with, can suddenly seem uncertain, confusing and overwhelming, the many thoughts and feelings that arise can leave us feeling unable to make sense of it all.
Your inner world can be very different to your external world and how you feel you have to be seen or heard, which can lead to conflicting emotions. Old habits and behaviours are not always healthy but we don't always know any other way of being. Peer pressure, society, your environment, social media and the demands of everyday life can bring up difficulties.
Whatever your age, background, race or culture, you are not alone. Together we can go walk the journey and explore what could be going on for you. Being heard and talking freely in a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space can be incredibly empowering in understanding who you are and how you can be more true to you, whilst navigating your own path for growth and development.
I am a registered member of the BACP and working towards my Level 4 diploma in integrative counselling, which means I am flexible in working with the best possible approach to achieving the best outcome for you, that promotes a positive transition for change, fulfilment and self-awareness. My experience is varied. Throughout my career or maybe I should say life experience there have been many challenges and I am often humbled at how I am constantly learning by what is shared working through many of life’s issues. I also work as a Clinical Volunteer for Cruse Bereavement and have a good understanding of Grief and Loss, as well as offering support to a charity that provides a space for those feeling profoundly suicidal.
I qualified in personal training and nutrition in 2008, since then life has taken a few twists and turns and has evolved with my interest in holistic well-being and counselling. I am passionate in what I do and committed to working ethically and safely with my clients to overcoming the challenges that we are presented with.
