Are others saying you don’t fit in, no matter what you do? Maybe you’re looking for a place where it’s comfortable to be who you really are. It could be you’ve tried talking, and now you’re waiting for someone to hear you.
Counselling can help you begin to create the future you want, whatever your experiences have been. With me, you’ll have space to explore and understand your needs, with support to find the right balance in your life.
I’ll help you find ways to build a greater knowledge of yourself and improve your understanding of why you do what you do.
I provide a safe space – to explore your feelings, your behaviours and your influences without fear or judgement. By building a relationship of trust with me, I hope you will be able to feel secure in sharing your vulnerability. Together we can explore, and maybe release, those emotions, memories or experiences which might have built up in your life.
It’s about learning. With my support, you will be able look at what you like – and maybe don’t like – about yourself as well as how others are able to impact you. Together, we’ll explore any behaviours and patterns which have held you back or left you feeling uncomfortable. Together we can begin the journey towards restoring your control.
Trusting me is your decision to make and an initial assessment will help you decide if we can work together.
It may help to know that I have lots of experience supporting people who process and approach the world from a different angle. I’ve worked professionally supporting people diagnosed with Autism, ADHD, Asperger Syndrome – as well as those who aren’t diagnosed – and many who belong to the LGBTQ+ community. I also have personal experience too.
I am neurodiverse with Dyspraxia and undiagnosed ADHD. These both bring challenges but are also gifts – I truly value my problem-solving skills, my need to understand meaning clearly and my perspective of the language we use, knowing what it feels like to be different.
I’m also a mum, to neurodiverse boys and a girl who is still finding her place. I understand the difficulties caused by communicating with those whose view of the world doesn’t match our own and I’ve been through the systems designed to give support.
While each person’s experience is different, I have a knowledge and understanding of the process which can help support you through this when you’re ready.
