I have been where you are. Feels a little scary doesn't it? Taking those first tentative steps towards the life you know deep down that you really deserve. Let me tell you, that the hardest and bravest decision you have already made; to come to me for professional help. From here on, you are not alone. We will work though your troubles and life's complications together. I cannot wave a magic wand; I will not tell you what to do. What I will do is support you whole heartedly throughout your journey of inner discovery. There are no instant miracles when it comes to changing the way you think, it takes work and commitment, but working together we can head towards what I believe we all aspire to - a life of Pure Thoughts.
At Pure Thoughts we take things at your pace. You are in charge. I will never push you to where you are not ready to go. The counselling relationship is at the heart of all that we do. It is this relationship that can elicit change and growth. Initially we will have a consultation session where you can explain why you have come to Pure Thoughts and what you would like to achieve. This can either be done on the phone or via a Zoom session (whilst under Covid restrictions). I will then send you a contract for you to look at, which is there to protect you and Pure Thoughts. If you find this agreeable we can then book in our first session. It's as easy as that. So if you can feel that inner fire to change, please head to the contact form. I am looking forward to meeting you!
