More Aware, More Alert, More Alive
Counselling is a space for you to start looking at the reasons and root causes of the issues that have brought you there in the first place. It might be the loss of a loved one, the breakdown of a relationship, a tendency towards self-destruction, a short or long history of depression, a rising anxiety, that brings you into counselling. It may even be a simple curiosity, a wish to understand yourself better. It might be a crossroads. In any case, and for whatever reason, counselling aspires to help guide you through by providing a safe and confidential space from which to do so.
As a counsellor, my aim is to help shine a light on your past, perhaps on areas that haven’t had much room to breathe, so that we can experience how your present is impacted by your past, and consequently make the necessary adjustments. My role involves a creativity that endeavours to assist you in coming to terms with your story, feeling more autonomous in the choices you make, and ultimately more empowered. My wish is to help in your process of coming to terms with yourself, so that you can start to live a fuller life; more aware, more alert, and more alive.
My work has been with those who have experienced significant loss in their lives, as well as those with issues such as addiction, depression, anxiety, and problems in their relationships.
