With increased awareness of self and others comes greater understanding of the situation and options available.
This often requires you to identify your own wants and needs that historically have been neglected. Then to develop strategies for positive conflict so your voice is heard and your self worth seen.
This enables you to recognise your abilities, to see the possibilities and to make the decision that brings about beneficial change.
In those situations over which you have no control such as bereavement and loss of a relationship this means coming to accept, being better able to cope day to day and living more fully.
The work takes place in the privacy of my private counselling practice which is a safe, confidential and discreet environment. It is located in central Southampton at Royal Mail House, Terminus Terrace with parking conveniently located nearby.
My role is not to judge, criticise, take sides or tell an individual or couples what to do or not to do. I am here to work with you through your difficulties to help in finding solutions so you can take a new direction in your life.
You are the expert on yourself and I have expertise in counselling, in this way we come together as equal participants. This is a collaborative and active process. Working together to bring about positive change and to realise the best outcomes.
I am an experienced and qualified counsellor holding membership of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).
