Hello and welcome.
Update: This is a time when many of us are finding it harder to cope with the difficult things in our lives, and where connecting with a therapist could really help. But it's also a time of lost income and financial uncertainty. In this vein, I am offering discounted sessions to those affected in this way. Please see my Contact page and drop me a line/call if you would like to enquire about this.
It can be hard to share some things with friends and family, can't it? This is often for fear of being judged, causing upset, having your personal issues disclosed or being told what to do. These obstacles are removed when you come to counselling.
As your counsellor I can help you work towards what you want. If you don't know what that is, that's okay and it is often where we start. I can help you find out. Everyone's journey is unique to them - in terms of the amount of sessions needed (which we regularly review), the focus of the therapeutic work and what you require from your counsellor in order to reach your goals.
If your journey must go via the route of difficult or dark places, I will stay alongside you in our sessions as a safe presence, so you need not face this stuff all by yourself.
Together we can work on you beginning to see your thoughts, feelings and patterns more clearly and to move towards an understanding of what you really want from your life (and maybe also what is standing in your way).
If you would like to 'test the water', I warmly invite you to contact me. From first contact I can offer an initial free half-hour assessment session via Skype, Zoom or telephone. Please see my Contact page for further details.
In ordinary times I work from a therapy room in Shepton Mallet (easily accessible to those in the Mendip area such as Glastonbury, Wells and Radstock). Due to the current situation, however, I am giving counselling sessions by video conferencing (Skype and Zoom) only.
