Counselling in Weymouth
Allow me to tell you a little more about myself...
I am passionate about my therapeutic work.
I am especially passionate about increasing self-awareness around what it means to be kind to ourselves - this can be very enlightening - Research suggests, that developing our capacity for self-compassion increases our resilience, and this in turn, can ultimately improve our quality of life.
I feel very fortunate to be based by the coast, in my home town of Weymouth, as I have a particular affinity for the sea - A restorative beach walk can be great for both physical and emotional well-being.
I believe in creating space for ourselves in order to manage the pressures of our busy, day-to-day lives.
A few minutes to hear the waves and smell the sea air is the best medicine for me.
The challenge is making ourselves a priority.
Through both my own life experiences, and through helping others, I've come to greatly appreciate the true value of self-care. We can often feel an inner-conflict around giving ourselves permission to attend to our own needs. Sometimes that can be something as simple as giving ourselves permission to take some time-out to listen to our favourite track or stopping for a cup of coffee (hot chocolate for me), and sometimes it is much more complex - even the simple stuff is not necessarily easy.
I believe that our lives can be much richer when we are connected to a sense of personal meaning and purpose.
I believe that our experiences can change us, but they do not define who we are.
These values strongly inform my professional practice and consequently what I am able to share with you through my therapeutic work.
Life can be great and life can be cruel.
Making sense of things is not always easy and having some support to work things out is not only possible, but perfectly ok.
