'It is good to have an end to journey toward: but it is the journey that matters, in the end.'
- Ursula K. Le Guin, B. 1929
Taking the first step to having counselling can be a daunting one. If you haven't had counselling before you may be apprehensive as to what to expect. If you have worked with a counsellor before, you may be wondering how I might compare to your previous counsellor. It is a relationship in which, if you permit me, we can work together through your difficult feelings. I am aware that I have a very privileged and trusted position in our relationship, which I regard with the respect that it deserves.
I find great satisfaction and joy in my work. My enthusiasm means that I have sought out different, and creative ways of working. Alongside using traditional talking therapies, I also often work creatively with art equipment, guided imagery, picture cards and blankets. More importantly, I recognise that we're all individuals and so I will aim to work in a way that suits you best.
I would welcome you to book an initial consultation to meet with me. There will be no expectation from this for you to commit to counselling, but instead an opportunity to discuss how I might be able to help, and give you a good idea as to whether you'd like to work together.
