Welcome.  Deciding to come to counselling / therapy takes courage. The process of therapy can help hidden parts of you to find a voice.  A voice that may have been lost long ago to bravery and silence, shame, guilt and fear. Just turning up may be a big step.

Perhaps you feel alienated and frustrated due to circumstances beyond your control.  Perhaps you suffer with anxiety, lack of motivation, low self esteem, addiction, communication and relationship problems. Perhaps experiences in your past have left you wondering who you really are and how to live this one and precious life.

I have an enduring interest in the relief of emotional suffering and the quest for a meaningful life. My focus is on finding the meaning hidden in our difficulties as a way to move through them.  My aim is to help you find new ways to relate to yourself and your world so as to move forward unhampered by the past. 

Counselling in Portishead North Somerset

Sometimes we do not understand why we are feeling rageful, fearful, low, lost, or lacking in meaning. We may feel very unsure. Sometimes we know there are things in the recent or more distant past that we need to acknowledge and come to terms with in order to move forward in life. Difficult times, especially in early life, can leave us with communication problems, depression, anger outbursts or panic attacks, self harm, addiction, eating disorders, difficulties with sexuality and gender identity. Times of crisis and uncertainty can be a turning point but some things must fall away to give space for new growth.

What does this mean for you I wonder? What is your soul calling for?

I know from personal experience – both as a client and as a therapist – that talking therapy helps very many of us to feel more connected, more alive, more at one with ourselves, and more able to make choices that take us in the direction we want to be going.
