‘In the waves of change we find our true direction’.
At the points in our lives when we feel like we are surrounded by change, we have an opportunity to remake ourselves. We can choose which parts we wish to take with us to build our future and which we no longer need. Whether change is imposed on us from the outside or it bubbles up from within us, it can leave us feeling out of control and stuck, unsure of what to do next. Whatever the feelings are that you are experiencing having a safe space to explore them and begin to make sense of what happens next can help you to take back control and choose your direction of travel.
I can offer you a place to be curious about what changes are possible for you, to explore your past and present so you can make choices about your future. As an integrative counsellor I am able to draw on a number of therapeutic approaches and we will work collaboratively to find out how I can best support you.
Because I know that counselling works best when you find the right person, I offer a free 20 minute telephone consultation, so you can check if I’m the right person for you. Please contact me by email or phone with your availability and I will get back to you in 48 hours. More information about me is available on my website www.curiosityspot.co.uk
As an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I offer person-centred, solution-focused therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and personal development coaching in a relaxed and supportive environment, either face to face in my practice room, or remotely by telephone, webcam or email - whichever works best for you.
My website provides a wealth of information: https://www.arboretumcounselling.com/
I work with both short term interventions and long term support depending on your requirements. I will work alongside you in a non-judgmental, confidential, empathic way which will allow you the time and space to make sense of and face whatever issues you have to enable you to move forward.
I am trained in telephone and web-based counselling and take your data security seriously. Online therapy gives you the opportunity to access counselling support at a time and in a place which suits you best.
