Over and over, life may have presented you with challenge after challenge, where you have learnt to cope by using unhealthy habits to suppress your trauma. You may Keep busy. Comfort eat. Binge drink. Abuse drugs. Sometimes, you might become so overwhelmed that it can feel isolating and scary. Unchecked, these methods of coping can build and build, until they even begin affecting those around you – from your families and friends, to work colleagues and, often, even strangers.
I predominantly work using a Client Centred counselling approach. I believe that trauma recovery is possible through the unique connection that you can develop with a counsellor and your own body. This allows you to begin safely exploring any difficulties that you might have come along with or that may arise during a counselling session.
Rather than offering advice, counselling can enable you to gain awareness into your own difficulties and help you find your own answers. By taking the time to explore your thoughts and feelings, you can shift, untangle, or resolve issues that may be causing you distress. I have learnt that it can be a very empowering process and can support you in safely exploring and releasing your trauma, regaining your inner strength and connecting to your heart. Based on this awareness, I have created my own 3 Steps to Trauma Recovery Model along with the option to book a starter package or individual session with me Click Here
Having worked within a wide range of professional settings – including the NHS, council run organisations, the voluntary sector, my own private business and in my own personal experience – I believe it is important to find a counsellor who you have that unique connection with.
I invite you to attend a free 30 minute initial session to help you decide if I am the right person for you. I invite you to trust your gut instinct and know that you will not be offending me if you choose to keep looking for a counsellor that is a better fit.
I offer online therapy sessions. Should
