Experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, Counselling in Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire


Counselling in Stoke on Trent

Are you or a family member searching for Counselling in Stoke on Trent? Do you feel that you’re suffering alone or need independent and specialised support?

I’m passionate about good practice in counselling and psychotherapy and have much experience of working with life’s complexities and struggles. My role is to help people explore their life challenges and associated feelings. The aim is to work through presenting problems and dissolve the intensity of challenging emotions. This may be attending to current difficulties or working with issues of the past.

Difficult times can disrupt our sense of wellbeing. Stress, anxiety, bereavement, depression, anger, despair and low confidence can come to test us. At these times skilled counselling support can help restore a sense of clarity and emotional security. If you need counselling in Stoke on Trent, I can help you.

For the therapeutic process to work well, a good working relationship needs to be created. My aim is to allow the work to move at your pace as rapport, trust and confidence builds. This is so important when discussing issues that may conjure challenging feelings such as anger, fear, sadness, guilt and shame. Skilled and compassionate counselling can help to dissipate their power.

There are no issues that I won’t consider working with. To have a good understanding of the psyche and human process allows competent working across a range of issues. A free of charge discussion on the telephone is possible if you want to be sure that I’m the right counsellor for you.
