I have several years experience of working with adults of all ages and cultures with a wide range of issues. Alongside my private practice I have worked with charities providing counselling across the West Midlands and with Universities.
People come to counselling with a wide range of issues and as your therapist, I aim to understand your issues from your point of view without judgement, so you may feel understood. I work in a warm, supportive way enabling you to explore your thoughts, feelings and emotions in a confidential and safe space. This exploration can lead to greater self-awareness helping you to understand what is going on for you, allowing you to feel more in control to make those changes in your life and to see things more clearly.
You may find that just a few sessions of counselling can help you to move on in your life or you may want to explore your issues at a slower pace – this is your therapy and we will work together to meet your needs. It is also your choice what you choose to share in therapy.
