I am a UKCP psychotherapist and counsellor. I usually work from quiet therapy rooms close to Shrewsbury town centre, but am seeing clients online for the time being.
Whether you are struggling with a particular problem or challenge, finding everything too much, or looking to deepen your awareness and understanding of yourself in order to get more out of life, I may be able to help you, or someone you know.
Seeking counselling or psychotherapy doesn't mean there's something wrong with you. It means you're taking a step towards improving the quality of your life.
Counselling and psychotherapy are recognised as being effective with many issues, such as:
anxiety · depression · abuse · bereavement · stress · trauma · eating disorders · addictions · anger · relationship difficulties · loss · low self-worth · lack of confidence · feeling stuck · loss of purpose · sense of emptiness · low self-esteem
By listening closely to what is being communicated through a symptom rather than setting out to eradicate it, by giving it the attention it needs and working through it together, we may reach a place of deeper healing.
My therapeutic approach, psychosynthesis, seeks to support you in unlocking hidden potential which may be contained within a painful issue or symptom, enabling you to let go of survival mechanisms and reconnect more deeply with your true self.
So it's possible to move from a place of distress or brokenness to empowerment, from confusion to clarity, from hopelessness to fulfilment.
There are plenty of counsellors and psychotherapists in Shropshire, mid-Wales and the West Midlands, but very few who offer psychosynthesis counselling and psychotherapy.
