The journey through life is not always easy and there may be times when we find ourselves feeling stuck, depressed, anxious or just not happy with ourselves or our situation. We may feel isolated and alone with our problems and unable to share or ask for support from friends and family; maybe because they are too close and unable to be objective, or perhaps we fear judgement or criticism.
I offer a safe, warm, non-judgemental and empathetic space, allowing you to explore your thoughts, feelings and emotions in a confidential environment. You will have the opportunity to express concerns and problems and achieve better clarity of thought. Through gaining a better self-understanding you can become more accepting and kinder to yourself. This allows life to flow more easily and become more fulfilling.
The areas I work with include anxiety, depression, PTSD, low self-worth, bereavement, living with chronic illness and relationship issues.
I am also a counsellor at The Olive Tree Cancer Support Centre in Crawley, Surrey, where I work with people diagnosed with cancer, before during and after treatment, and family members affected or bereaved by cancer.
As well as working as a counsellor, I am a health coach specialising in treating and managing chronic illness. I can incorporate health coaching into a counselling session if desired. It can be beneficial to look at diet and lifestyle and see how it may be impacting on health and well-being. Simple changes in these areas can improve symptoms and help treat chronic illness, both mental and physical.
In order to offer the most up to date and effective therapy available, I am constantly working on my self-improvement through continuing personal development.
