I consider myself to be an “old soul” and throughout my life people have always gravitated towards me for support and advice. I believe I can provide empathy and understanding in helping you through whatever challenges you face. As hard and painful as life’s challenges can be, I believe they are integral part of our life’s journey and in many cases, our greatest teachers. Moreover, I believe that overcoming the bigger challenges in life is essential for our spiritual growth and ultimately to lasting happiness. Of course, this says nothing about the suffering and pain that each of us goes through whilst facing life’s issues – having been through many periods of pain, loss, grief and struggle through my own life, I am intimately aware of the pain and suffering we undergo in defeating the obstacles life puts in our way. Although I can adapt my style to your needs, I have a natural tendency towards helping you to realise practical solutions to your issues as I believe that change and action (in whatever form) is what helps you unstick yourself from wherever you are stuck. I am also happy to integrate any of my more holistic or spiritual/energy practices into your counselling experience and can therefore also offer Bach Flower Remedies and a number of healing approaches (including Reiki) into your therapy.
