How I work.
There are times in life when you may experience feeling overwhelmed, lost and alone due to life difficulties and personal life events. As individuals, we often strive to survive and seek belonging and fulfilment. I understand it can often feel daunting to face this journey alone. Therefore, during these times, I offer a safe and non-judgemental space where you can explore any life challenges you may be experiencing.
My main foundation when working as a counsellor is from a humanistic perspective by working relationally, which enables me to connect uniquely with each individual within the therapeutic relationship. However, I also draw upon different theoretical concepts relating to our past and present, which help facilitate a deeper understanding of ourselves. Exploring our connection to life and understanding our thought processing can help create personal insight, enabling a pathway towards change and personal growth.
