About half of my counselling work is in general counselling.
It may be that you are sad, anxious or depressed? A relationship may have ended, or you may be in one in which you are currently unhappy? You may be suffering from bullying or harrassment. You may be juggling pressures of work and home life? illness may have affected you or a family member, or someone close to you has died? Perhaps you are lacking in confidence, self-esteem or self-image? Whatever it might be, I am interested to help you, because it is making your life unhappy.
The other half of my counselling work is in working with survivors of sexual violence and child abuse, sometimes causing trauma.
So, I can also help you with the more frightening things that can happen in life, such as having been sexually, physically or emotionally abused, either as an adult or a child. I have considerable experience and additional training in helping people with trauma resulting from these events and who may suffer from symptoms of PTSD, Complex PTSD or DID and/or who may self-harm or dissociate.
