What is Counselling?
Counselling, or psychotherapy, can be a useful process for those wishing to explore their thoughts and feelings, as well as those experiencing an issue or problem they wish to resolve.
Similar to other counsellors, I do not give advice, rather I aim to provide a safe, and non-judgmental space where I can gain a deep understanding of who you are and what is causing you distress.
If you are feeling overwhelmed, or living with feelings that you find difficult to cope with, then counselling can provide a space where we can explore why you feel the way you do. Together we will work towards helping you to find the answers.
Whilst change can seem daunting, sometimes the smallest step in the right direction, can be the biggest step of all.

The Ammonite Logo
Growing up along the Jurassic coast, I have always been drawn to the ammonite fossil, collecting many as a small child.
Associated with the third eye, and root chakra, it is known as a grounding fossil and believed to empower wearers to brave the unknown.
The ammonite's spiral shape is symbolic of change and personal growth. I believe that often growth is not linear, but a spiral, where we can gently move back and forth to face our difficulties.
Counselling and psychotherapy can help provide us with new insights and increase our self-awareness, so that each time we bravely face our fears, we can revisit what is causing us distress from an alternative perspective.
The ammonite chambers are thought to filter out negative energies no longer needed, and attract new and positive energies, increasing in size to accommodate new stages of growth.
I aim to provide you with a safe and supportive space to tell your story in a way that best suits you. And often, like the spiral shape of the ammonite, this is approached from the periphery and together we work inwards.
I believe that through a collaborative and trusting relationship, we can embark upon a therapeutic journey, helping you to identify and filter out what is no longer serving you, facilitate growth and gently guide you to a happier place.
Let's brave the unknown, together.
