Sometimes the experiences we have in life leave us stressed frustrated or isolated and it's hard to make changes on our own. 
It can help to express issues in our mind and heart in a caring, accepting space with someone who wants to understand.

About counselling....

 Life stories and relationships impact on our inner experience and the way we feel about ourself and others.  Keeping it all on the inside can lead to self doubt and big feelings like anger, sadness, fear etc.  It might lead to depression, anxiety, low confidence etc. Understanding ourself and our story can unlock the door to change-but it's hard to do it alone.

 

 Talking this through with a supportive therapist can help significantly as humans are wired for change as a result of positive interaction.

 

Talking it through with a qualified therapist who is caring, impartial and insightful can help connect

the dots and unlock the door to change..

Working collaboratively to move forward ...

Whatever it is you're dealing with I provide a safe, supportive space to work through it and move forward.  I am experienced at taking a collaborative approach using strategies and frameworks appropriate to the issues at hand. I am trained in Narrative & Person Centred Therapies, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and work with an understanding of our capacity to change based on neuroscience.

I see young people (15years+) through to 

not so young

 In the initial session we can discuss how the counselling process works, and identify what you want to get out of counselling.   Generally you should notice  progress in whatever purpose we have set together within 3-5 sessions. Some people may benefit from longer term counselling, depending on the issues being faced.

Testimonials

 

Anita is so accepting and easy to talk to. She has helped me to see things from a new perspective and given me really practical tools for managing things that I'd been struggling with. Going to see her was always a highlight of my week!

I am now able to take a positive attitude going into a situation rather than worrying people won’t like me

I have now realised that I don’t have to constantly question myself – I can just be accepting of myself.  I have also decided that although other people are factors, I can set my own path.
