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 Ryde on the Isle of Wight and on-line via Zoom or Skype.
Life can present us with challenging experiences and give rise to a range of difficult feelings such as stress, anxiety, depression, anger or shame. You may be feeling overwhelmed, confused or frightened or have lost a sense of purpose and meaning especially in current world circumstances. You may be experiencing relationship issues, loss or illness or generally feeling stuck, unfulfilled or unhappy in yourself. There may be issues from the past that occupy your thoughts that you have never talked about. Reaching out for help can feel difficult but it can also be a great relief. However impossible it might be to see a way through or to believe that counselling/psychotherapy can help I would encourage you to take that first step.
Counselling/psychotherapy are ways of making sense of your thoughts, feelings and experiences in a safe, holding and non-judgemental space. 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. 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.
My aim as a counsellor/ psychotherapist is 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. I offer a welcoming, confidential, and reliable setting to work through things at your own pace from my counselling/psychotherapy practice in Ryde and on line via Zoom or Skype. Please contact me for a free no obligation consultation to discuss what may have brought to counselling and to find out more about how I work. Call me on 07807 589134 or email: [email protected]
