Time for You…
When you are needing support to manage/ overcome difficulty, or to find more meaning and fulfilment in your life, counselling offers a safe space where you can think about yourself and take time to talk.
Counselling gives you the opportunity to talk with a trained professional who will listen, in a non-judgemental way, to help you better understand and address those issues affecting your wellbeing.

I am an HCPC registered Art Therapist also trained to work online and face to face with adults and children as well as a member of BACP and a Fellow of the RSA. I have experience working with adults in the community for the NHS as well as voluntary work with charities and with children in primary schools.
Sessions and treatment are planned to meet your individual emotional, therapeutic and basic ‘being’ needs before working on any life experiences or difficulties.
What does meeting being needs look like?
Ways to regulate emotions – to relax, feel calm and self sooth
Ways to keep and feel safe
The experience of being with another, being heard.
Once safety, trust are established we can look to process experiences and difficulties you may be facing.
