Word on a Wing Counselling

"No single event can awaken within us a stranger whose existence we had never suspected. To live is to be slowly born."
- Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

We all need to feel heard, not judged, not told what to do. Being listened to, feeling seen for who we are, can be of great help in times of turmoil.

Counselling is all about listening, sometimes to what is not even being said. As a counsellor I have no agenda except your welfare, development and insight, to help you find the path which best suits you. Crucial to this process is developing a trusting, consistent relationship within which we can explore far and wide, whilst remaining safe and contained.

I have always been interested in the stories we tell, both to ourselves and others. The words we use can be as solid and unmoveable as concrete, keeping us stuck in a place which we no longer recognise; a place which neither suits us, or even want to be in. Counselling can help us find new words, new frameworks for ourselves in the world.

I offer a relational approach within a framework involving equals. I have joined many in finding their own path, aware of differing possibilities and diversity of each individual's journey. My foundation is psychodynamic; however, I am influenced by a number of humanistic philosophies - with an emphasis on existential thinking. I hold the therapeutic relationship as the bedrock of beneficial counselling.

I am mindful of the holistic approach to therapy, engaging self care, helping to bring mind and body into greater harmony, leading to clearer thinking and progression; as well as contextualising experience within cultural and social expectations.
