The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!logo low res

Life can be hard. We can all find ourselves facing challenging life experiences at various times and can struggle with difficult thoughts and uncomfortable emotions. We may feel stuck, confused, overwhelmed ……

Maybe you are currently facing relationship or family issues, low self-esteem, stress, anxiety, depression; perhaps you are feeling conflicted, frightened,  or experiencing shame or anger or loss…
Or maybe you feel unfulfilled or simply have a sense that something is missing in your life.

It could be that you are going through a traumatic season in your life and need help to process your pain or practically find a way of facing your fears.

Making the decision to come for therapy, like all steps into the unknown can feel scary and can take a good deal of courage.  I would like to encourage you that while this is a big step, it also begins a journey of self-discovery that can be transformational.  Life can be so full of limitations, rules and restrictions, that it’s easy to lose our sense of freedom and choice…… I can offer you a safe and confidential space in which you feel heard and understood.   My person-centred approach means that I respect your uniqueness as an individual and seek to understand how it is to be you in your world.  I won’t judge you but will gently help you to make the changes to grow.   My C.B.T focus (particularly using contemporary C.B.T’s like Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Compassion Focused Therapy) keeps therapy practical and goal orientated, developing ways of being that work better for you while honouring all of the different aspects of who you are and who you would like to be.

Together we can focus on whatever is important to you, helping you to gain deeper insight and awareness of yourself and the challenges you face. My aim is that my calm and open approach will support you in exploring your thoughts and feelings, making sense of your situation and in making positive choices for a meaningful life that fulfils your values.
