There is no grief like the grief that does not speak
Grieving can feel like the loneliest experience in the world. Counselling provides a safe place where you can freely express how you are feeling without being judged, ridiculed or criticised.
Fear is our worst enemy. We will try and find a balance and take back control
Depression can be a very lonely experience
"It's not about getting the feeling out of the mind, or hiding it, but about experiencing it with acceptance" - Rogers (1961)
Qualified Person-Centered Counsellor
My main approach is person-centred therapy, although I may integrate other therapeutic methods. I believe we are all unique and have the potential to change, therefore develop a belief in your ability to cope and have a better understanding of self through the therapeutic process.
My practice room:
I have a private room in Portishead.
Safe and Confidential
I can offer a safe place with empathy in a non-judgemental environment where you will not be ridiculed or criticised. I can offer face to face counselling for short term or long term.
