I Believe in You“But you don’t know me” I imagine you saying.
I believe every one of us has the following rights:-
• To be understood, accepted without judgement, valued, engaged in relationship
• To feel the whole range of your emotional spectrum
• To be uniquely you
• To live more authentically in line with your experience
I believe in your potential to grow & develop in the ways you want. As human beings we are naturally drawn to seek connection with others. I believe that the warm & engaging relationship I offer as your counsellor will enable you to feel safe enough to be able to explore your issues to find your way forward. These beliefs are expressed in my relationships with my clients.
Are you seeking a counsellor or psychotherapist (including CBT) in the Dorking Reigate Leatherhead area?
Feeling anxious (possibly about Covid-19), stressed, depressed, bereaved, or having relationship difficulties? Do you need support in dealing with anger management issues? By "anger management issues" I mean struggling to express your frustrations constructively and appropriately, bottling up feelings until they burst out at a time and in a manner that does not feel under your control.
...or maybe you just want to get more out of life and move from coping to living life to the full. Sometimes it is enough just to have your feelings acknowledged, or it may be that we need to work through issues from your past which are are influencing you now. Whatever the issue, I offer a warm & engaging space in which you can talk and explore what is going on for you without judgement and in confidence.
