Are you struggling to cope with a bereavement, finding it difficult to overcome stress and anxiety, living with trauma's you have experienced or are experiencing? I want to help you navigate your way through these struggles and to transform your life, not just to cope, but to thrive.
We can work together so that you can cope with life's struggles and, through transformation, can move towards a life where you can thrive, raise your self-esteem and confidence. A life where you don't feel like you are invisible, but can be seen and heard.
Why I might be a good fit for the struggles you are experiencing:
I have experience of working with people who are navigating some of life's struggles. I am an integrative counsellor and use a person centred approach, with a focus on Polyvagal Therapy for trauma, stress and anxiety, and a Growing Your Life Around Grief approach for Grief and Loss. The above can include looking at how the past influences present feelings and behaviours whilst, staying in the present to explore coping strategies and ways of dealing with bereavement, anxiety, depression, loss, trauma, long term health problems, and relationship difficulties. ;
Specifically I offer Couples Counselling, in person or on-line; and
Outdoor Therapy (please contact me for further details). We will discuss what is suitable for you, but generally, in addition to the counselling element, being outdoors may give an increased sense of well-being, more energy during the day and better sleep at night and help you to relax. It may improve the recovery process. As with Polyvagal Therapy, it can help the brain rewire itself to better manage stress and assist in healing from trauma. All this, along with a free dose of Vitamin D!
My counselling experience includes an NHS placement looking at the effects of chronic ill health with associated losses and volunteering with CRUSE bereavement support. I was a Samaritans volunteer for eight years.
Further professional development and training has been undertaken in Anxiety Disorder, Trauma, and Mindfulness.
