Experienced and qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist offering Individual and Couples Counselling in Basingstoke and Reading.
Life can be stressful. Sometimes we can feel dissatisfied and lack direction or purpose. Talking to friends and family can be invaluable, but doesn't quite help us move on with confidence. This is when a professionally trained therapist can help.
I am committed to helping individuals and couples overcome their difficult and sensitive personal issues. My concern is to help you move on quickly and effectively. I work in a way that is gentle, thoughtful, compassionate and supportive. I use effective challenging to help you focus on what is really hurting so you can move beyond the pain towards a more fulfilling life.
Individual counselling with me has been proven to help people overcome anxiety, depression, anger issues, addictions, trauma, eating disorders, relationships issues and other issues.
In couples counselling I am skilled in helping couples move out of painful avoidance and conflict towards a more satisfying and fulfilling relationship. I work in a very hands on way to alleviate the issues and help you re-focus on what is important. Sometimes a relationship can't be saved, but we don't know unless we try.
Couples counselling is a specialised form of therapy and I would always recommend you see a professionally trained couples therapist.
