Humanistic-Existential Counsellor

Hi, I am Gen, a fully qualified, BACP registered Humanistic-Existential Counsellor.

I work with a variety of issues, specialising in loss/bereavement, chronic pain, anxiety, panic attacks etc. helping people to find purpose and meaning after traumatic loss or adapting to a new environment.

My own multi-cultural background and my lived experience of adaptation and loss in different countries help me gain deeper insight into the ways that people cope with transition, changes and loss. Throughout my life and different careers, I came to understand that purpose and meaning of life continually change.

Working as LSA (supporting children requiring extra support and care) at schools I understand the challenges the parents and teachers go through, not realising the “burnout”. As a result of my own experiences, my passion is to help others to overcome challenging times, consider new perspectives, develop their full potential, discover a deeper sense of their purpose and meaning.

I’m interested in hearing about how you experience the world around you, including important relationships and events that have shaped you. I’ll listen carefully and ask gentle, respectful questions in order to discover the strengths and resources you have inside you, working compassionately with the issues that matter to you.

Together we will build a safe and trusting relationship so that you feel able to talk about your concerns without being judged and so we can discover what might be lying underneath the issues that brought you to therapy.
