IN THE RUSH and muddle of everyday life, a still space can be hard to find. At Oasis Therapeutic Counselling, however, you will find exactly that – a calm, safe, confidential and non-judgemental place for you to share your thoughts and feelings.
People may consider having counselling for many reasons, but taking that first step can be the hardest of all. Sometimes it takes a lot of courage and I recognise how difficult that can be. If you are thinking of it, I encourage you to give it a try.
I offer traditional face-to-face counselling at my therapy room in rural Cambridgeshire, but I also love to be in nature and find that counselling outdoors can significantly add to the therapeutic experience. Inside or outside is, as always, your choice. And whatever setting you choose, we will work together to address whatever difficulties you face.
I am a fully qualified counsellor, offering therapeutic support to adults and young people. As well as my private practice, I have also worked in a secondary school, where I provided counselling for students. I also worked with Cruse Bereavement Care for a number of years, offering bereavement support to adults.
With the right support, there is potential for change, which can allow us to lead more fulfilling lives. Having the space to explore aspects of your life with an experienced and qualified professional can lead to a fresh perspective on life, galvanising lasting change and new hope.
Nature is one of the few constants. It is always there for us, no matter how badly we neglect or care for it. It springs back time and again, in cycles. And I have an unshakeable belief that every single one of us has that same potential for growth, change and renewal.
Life always returns, the bulbs break through and the new shoots appear in spring. No matter what obstacles we put in their way, no matter how dark the place they are in, they always prevail, reaching for the life-affirming light. Nature inspires my therapeutic practice.
I love being in nature. It is what feeds and sustains me. I have witnessed how hugely beneficial just walking or simply being outside can be for the therapeutic process. There is something about connecting with the earth under our feet and sensing the growth and renewal of life in nature that offers us hope for the future.
