About Cheryl

Specialising in Bereavement and Loss

My Journey

Some years ago a close family member sadly experienced a mental health condition which turned my world upside down. Reaching out and trying to find the right help was a daunting task but thankfully, after seeking the right help, that person has now recovered. It is through that help we received, as well as experiencing that desperate need to be understood, that I decided to pursue a career in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

This has been key to enhancing my personal development but more so, it has given me a deeper insight into the belief that we are all capable of change through therapeutic intervention. I therefore feel that it is both my mission and passion to be able to offer help to others who need to share their feelings, those who feel suffocated and need to share, and those who are feeling vulnerable as a result of suffering from distressing circumstances.

Connection

My practice is based on a person-centred perspective and also integrates other relevant approaches to counselling and psychotherapy.  I passionately believe that the connection between the counsellor and client is key to developing a trusting therapeutic relationship. Trusting a stranger is not easy, but with time, commitment and reassurance it is hoped that a mutual understanding and trust will grow.  As the therapeutic relationship builds so does the person and in time a confidence develops enabling that person to take back control of their feelings and emotions. Life and new opportunities will begin to seem clearer and you will slowly gain a deeper insight into who you truly are and a greater understanding of others and the world around you.

Self Belief

The more exploration, challenging and reflecting you experience on self, the more empowered you will begin to feel.  This new sense of accomplishment, will enable you to take back that control in life and make better choices in life and in time find new meaning to your life.
