In terms of children I will also need their school details and next of kin. As a mental health provider it is important to have the minimal information required to fulfil a duty of care to children and young people whom I work with.
Can you fix me ? I have often been asked this question and the honest answer is NO!
My role is not to FIX you, but to help you to discover new ways of being in the world, and maybe new ways of relating.
By helping you to gain a better understanding your internal world, for example how you react to others and how you react and respond to yourself. You might sometimes overlook yourself, maybe viewing it as selfish. You might even put yourself last on the list!. Together we can explore these kinds of issues, with a view making changes to enable you to achieve goals you set for yourself. Please feel free to contact me, There is no obligation you can either email me or check out the Contact and Fees page
Gaining a greater sense of self awareness, results in a stronger sense of self esteem. The issues that once felt insurmountable, can be more easily managed with less personal impact to you or without resulting in a relationship breakdown.
