Counselling is a term used to describe various talking therapies, its aim is to assist people overcome issues or difficulties in
their lives, bring about active change or improve their overall well being. As a trained addiction counsellor I will allow you a safe and non-judgemental space where you can talk and explore
difficult or uncomfortable experiences or feelings. I will not give you advice but allow you the time and freedom to examine different options and ideas, this will be of great benefit to you and
assist you bringing about positive change in your life. I am a member of the Federation of Drug and Alcohol Professionals (FDAP) which means that I am bound by their code of ethics, the (FDAP) as
a body set and improve professional standards and develop the work force in the field.
What to expect from counselling?
You might be caught up in behaviours or thought processes that you learned from a young age that are causing you pain, or you
might have had experiences that have been challenging to process. I will encourage you to express your feelings, emotions and experiences in an open, compassionate and non-judgemental way. This
can assist you in gaining a more thorough understanding of your feelings and thought processes, as well as identifying positive solutions to overcome these challenges. Some of the areas that I
