Counselling, Psychotherapy and Supervision
I am a fully qualified and experienced psychotherapist and supervisor with over 10 years experience of working with adults and young people. I offer 1 to 1 counselling and psychotherapy sessions in person in Brading on the Isle of Wight and on-line via Zoom or Skype.
Anyone can be faced with challenging experiences or difficult feelings, feel stressed , anxious or depressed or to have lost a sense of purpose and meaning especially in current world circumstances. You may be feeling overwhelmed, confused or frightened. You may be experiencing relationship issues, loss or illness or generally feeling stuck, unfulfilled or unhappy in yourself. It may feel difficult to reach out and open up about what is bothering you but by doing so it can be a great relief. However impossible it might be to see a way through or to believe that counselling can help I would encourage to take that first step. I believe that anything, even the most challenging experiences can be worked through to find peace, understanding and acceptance as well as love and joy.
Counselling and psychotherapy are ways of making sense of thoughts, feelings and experiences. Talking with someone who is skilled in listening and understanding can bring clarity and insight into what may be troubling you and can lead to possible ways forward. On a deeper level psychotherapy is an opportunity to know and understand yourself and your relationship with others more fully. Sometimes life's experiences or challenges can pull us off track, inhibit our sense of self and we can lose sight of who we. By unravelling the layers of ourselves, by discovering our strengths and qualities psychotherapy can lead to an enhanced sense of self and purpose and ultimately to a better quality of life.
Talking to a stranger about your personal feelings and experiences can feel daunting. I offer a welcoming, open-hearted, confidential, reliable and non-judgemental setting to work through things at your own pace. I work on a short term (6-12 sessions) or an open ended basis depending on your needs and expectations. I have a private, dedicated and covid secure room from which I practice counselling, psychotherapy and supervision in Brading and on line via Zoom or Skype.
I am very experienced in working with adults and adolescents alike on of a range of issues including anxiety, panic attacks, depression, troubled relationships, bereavement and loss, loss of meaning and direction, addiction, low self-esteem and lack of confidence, developmental trauma, transgender and illness. I work with people who are struggling to come to terms with difficult childhoods or troubled family environments and who may have suffered from physical, sexual. emotional abuse or neglect.
My aim as counsellor and psychotherapist is to find a connection with you and to make sure you feel heard and understood. I am genuinely interested in what it is to be human with all its complexities and challenges. My approach is deeply intuitive, creative and insightful working holistically with the mind, body and spirit.
I believe that even the most challenging or painful experiences can provide opportunities for growth and transformation that can ultimately lead to a renewed sense of purpose and deeper connection to ourselves and life.
