My Blog

So Who am I and what am I like as a counsellor?

I know when people contact me by email, text or phone they will have a picture in their head of what I look like, how old I might be and be curious about my accent. Some will have looked at the website and seen my photo (which I do update and is not photo-shopped).
I wrote this blog to give you another dimension to me as a counsellor and to let you know what my clients and colleagues say about me.
Clients say I am a warm and friendly person who they feel a connection with quickly and also feel safe with, and that I can be trusted. Others have said that they like my sense of humour and ability to laugh with them. I have been told that I am a very good listener and that they feel able to tell me things that they haven't told another human being. I feel truly honoured to be entrusted with their worries, concerns, thoughts and feelings about their lives. Clients have also said that I am respectful of them and take my time to allow them to tell me about their lives and the difficulties they face. Often clients will tell me that they feel better after a session and that something has been soothed in them, or that they understand themselves a little more and experience compassion for their situation and for what's happened to them.
Colleagues say they experience me as wise, empathic and having a maternal or motherly energy about me. They enjoy my fun sense of humour and how much I love to laugh with them. My colleagues also refer people to me for counselling and psychotherapy. They describe me as intelligent, warm and supportive.
I love my work. I get to meet people, get to know them, work together with them and support them to feel better and move on with their lives.
Is there anything you would like to know about me as a counsellor?
