Psychotherapy

Making the most of ourselves is a very basic motivational instinct that we all recognise within us. Clients have often said that as a result of working with me they have been able to develop the awareness, attitudes, values, beliefs and behaviours necessary to lead rewarding, fulfilling and satisfying lives through:-

  • Getting to know and understand themselves better
  • Utilising coping strategies to deal with personal difficulties e.g. anger, anxiety, bereavement, phobias, panic, self esteem, stress and trauma
  • Building, sustaining and revitalising relationships with others
  • Valuing difference in others
  • Improving parenting and family relationship capabilities
  • Developing their professional careers
  • Adjusting to the life changes needed to support family with developmental delay and learning difficulties
  • Believing that they can lead others successfully
  • Exploring their spiritual side

 My experiences ranges from working with relationship issues, supporting in times of change, loss or life turbulence, to motivating people in refocusing and moving forward in life. I work alongside the individual aiding them to unblock their way forward.
