Beauty For Ashes was birthed from my own personal journey of suffering. As Dieter Utchdorf said "as I look over my own life, it is apparent that many times of great growth have come to me while passing through stormy seasons."
As the name implies there is an exchange - we receive beauty in exchange for the ashes of our suffering. Many of us have experienced challenging times and we have been wounded as a result - these are our ashes. To find the beauty we must first be willing to journey through the difficulties and often the pain we feel as a result. Doing this can enable us 'let go of the ashes,' discover more of who we are and walk into the change we want to see for our lives.
At Beauty For Ashes Counselling we believe there is hope for healing; that you can work through even the most painful difficulties and improve your overall wellbeing. We believe that beauty is often discovered through our ability to be vulnerable. In that place true healing is often found.
I work as a private therapist, offering a warm and non-judgemental approach to counselling. My experience of over 11 years working in the addiction field has led me to understand that addictions are often the symptom of deeper, underlying issues. As a result I have vast experience of working with clients on an array of difficulties including anxiety, trauma, depression, low self worth, mental health struggles and many more.
I am based in the Dunmurry area, situated between Lisburn and Belfast.
I am a fully accredited member of BACP and all of my practice is informed by their Ethical Framework of Good Practice for counsellors (www.bacp.co.uk)
