Therapy for Support - Grief, Loss, Trauma or Change
As an experienced Bereavement Counsellor I offer you sensitive expert support and guidance with bereavement, loss, or change can be valuable to help you cope through difficulties and help with life ahead. Please see my thoughts concerning The Benefits of Exploring Grief or Loss.
LOSS AND BEREAVEMENT, such a significant and difficult part of our lives in so many ways and is of particular interest, following my training and experience working as a Counsellor within a bereavement service. Grief comes in many forms of losses or changes so by identifying such events or past patterns it can help us to understand and reshape our path ahead.
- Anticipated grief of a loved one dying
- Baby, or child loss
- Child bereavement, Loss of Parent
- Bereavement, loss of a loved one and coping without them
- Chronic or ongoing complicated grief
- Disability or illness and impact of life
- Pet loss
- Sudden loss, traumatic or anticipated loss
- Loss associated with life changes or circumstances
The Benefits of Exploring Grief or Loss
Counselling support can be a significant help during a distressing time of suffering a loss, by talking with someone understanding and experienced for you, who is at your side. Often other people in your life do not know what to do or say to help you, making grieving a very isolating experience.
Bereavement Counselling therapy can help make sense of what has happened and the changes it has brought, together with the many complex emotions and experiences attached to it, which can continue for any amount of time. Sensitive expert support and guidance alongside allowing yourself to address your feelings, can help avoid distressing isolation, possible complications in grief, as well as help with the worry of practical matters and functioning.
As a grief therapist, I support the needs of every client individually with patience, respect and dignity.

My Therapy Approach - Working with Adults & Young People
As a Qualified Humanistic Integrative Counsellor, trained and experienced in multiple therapy approaches, I offer you tailored private therapy for your individual needs (not one fits all).
My Therapy Approaches are tailored according to therapy issues and your personal preferences, whether it be more directly problem solving issues or issues benefiting from deeper therapeutic exploration.
All therapy work is relationship focused, putting your personal therapy needs and wishes foremost, as well as working within the guidelines of the BACP Ethical Framework. Some specialised interventions I practice include the Mindfulness Guided Imagery for Anxiety, Stress, Panic, as well as the Human Givens Rewind Technique, effective for treating phobias as well as difficult memories or trauma conditions.
Therapy for Stress, Issues & Problems
Talking and working therapeutically can help you in many so aspects of your life - to alleviate stress, to resolve/solve problems, to rebuild your life and hopes, for continued chronic support, to bring better understanding of your worries and anxiety, or just get some clarity at a difficult time. Therapy is conducted confidentially and sensitively with me, another understanding human, to receive you as you are, and help you explore your world, effectively.
Therapy for Self-Discovery, Health & Well-Being
As a human, this is good to understand... Awareness and understanding of our feelings has a direct connection to wellness - this cannot be underestimated. The stress of bottling up feelings and avoiding matters can cause problems.
Therapeutically exploring your thoughts and feelings, like using an internal Sat Nav, helps self understanding and behaviours, helps identify what you may be lacking, craving or struggling with. It can empower you to get your needs met both emotionally and physically, with conscious decision making rather than succumbing to unhelpful habits, addictions, anger behaviours or stresses, which may lead to health issues including Anxiety, Depression, or Emotional and Physical Breakdown for example.
Are you feeling low and hopeless in this cycle? I can help you with life issues, past or present to get you back on track - with life how it should be.
Therapy for Life Change, Relationships & Self-Development
Clients often report that counselling has changed their life - for themselves, relationships, situations and future hopes. That our sessions have brought them relief from troublesome thoughts, emotions and behaviour, together with new helpful perspectives, communication skills and strategies. With this comes increased self understanding and confidence, bringing the benefits of new options and courage to make changes. What may exist for you?!
It's never too late to change your life
How important are you - to yourself, and others? I understand that at a difficult time, feelings of low confidence can make asking for help difficult. Maybe too, you think ‘I should just get on with it’ or that having counselling is self-indulgent, or an unwarranted expense? Perhaps consider the implications to your health and circumstances and how counselling could help. How can I help you? I welcome a Consultation call providing time for you to find out more about how I can help.
