Counselling - online & face to face 

I support individuals by helping you explore problems that are troubling you now, and experiences from your past that perhaps contribute to current fears, worries or anxieties. I also provide creative counselling, meaning you can explore issues using tools that support you to express experiences unique to you. 
Couples and relationship counselling helps both partners to better identify and clarify habitual and unhelpful patterns of communication and behaviours. The counselling I offer is a combination of Person Centred and Solution Focused Approaches combined with Neuro- Linguistic- Programing. This combination supports couples to safely share their experience of the relationship and begin using tools and resources to identify solutions and work towards achieving long term relationship goals and ambitions.

Shells & Pebbles

 Shells and pebbles enables you to explore different parts of your ‘self’. This is helpful because sometimes, we become ‘stuck’ as our thoughts and emotions are in conflict.

When you select and place objects, it can be very revealing, providing you with surprising insights and developing your self- awareness.

Using shells and pebbles helps when it is hard to ‘put things into words’ in a way that accurately describes how you are feeling, especially if you are struggling to make sense of them yourself. Using shells and pebbles can be easier than talking in instances  when you naturally want to ‘clam up’ about something difficult. This type of therapy is helpful for exploring a range of issues.

Sand Trays

Our brains like symbols and metaphors, and working with sand trays are ideal  if you find it hard to talk about your thoughts and emotions, or if you’re not even sure what they actually are. Placing and moving objects in sand helps you build a picture which increases your emotional self- awareness.

Mood Cards

Mood cards are a way to help you explore feelings like happiness, joy, sadness, resentment, worry and stress. Using mood cards helps you to define and understand your thoughts, feelings and emotions in response to a variety of situations.

Worksheets and Exercises 

Worksheets can be helpful for focusing on specific areas you would like help with, for example,  developing self- esteem or confidence. Worksheets can help reveal core beliefs, values, thoughts and feelings which influence entrenched patterns of behavior, and help create new emotions and behavioural responses.

One to one sessions 

Talking about what is troubling you is hugely beneficial, whatever your issue or problem. Talking gives you new perspective, different insights in how to tackle the problem, and frees you from unhelpful thinking habits and patterns.
