My name is Christine and my counselling is aiming to help you gain back your natural state of being, such as confidence and self esteem.

My aim is helping you to understand your own issue, accepting it, because you learn to understand the reason what is happening and why, and then to release this feeling of distress.

I work with the person as a whole  (Mind, Body & Spirit) and believe that everyone has their own unique perception of the world.

Sometimes in our life, worries can be a source of great distress, linked to anxiety, social isolation, depression,  relationship problems, chronic health issues such as pain or intense self-consciousness (just to name a few). Often people feel particularly isolated when friends and family seek to reassure them without understanding the depth of unhappines which they are feeling.

Talking to someone when you are distressed and explore how you feel  in confidence and who is not a friend or family member can make all the difference.
