Welcome to my website. This is to tell you who I am and what I can offer you if you are considering having some counselling.
I am an experienced and fully qualified counsellor, with 15 years in practice, mostly with adults, covering a wide range of issues. I work from my home in Rodborough, Stroud.
I offer a space for you to consider thoughts and feelings which you cannot share elsewhere in your life.
You could be trying to manage a crisis or life-changing event. There may be issues from your past you want to explore. You may be experiencing a sense of low self-esteem, or just be feeling sad and wondering why.
As your counsellor I would not give advice, instead we work together to find a way for you to move forward. My belief is that through the process of being in counselling, you will feel more accepting of yourself and your interactions with the world outside will begin to reflect who you really are so you can reach better outcomes.
I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have trained to Diploma level in Couples Counselling and Certificate level in Psychosexual Therapy. I also teach Counselling courses at SGS College in Stroud.
I offer couples counselling too, for working on difficulties which have emerged in your relationship. Old patterns of behaviour which come between you, causing problems, will become clear and you will gain new understanding of how you can change. I enable you to explore what binds you and your partner together, and how it may have also pushed you apart. You will be able to find ways of communicating more effectively and discover how to get needs met.
