Beauty for ashes


COUNSELLING  -  A golden thread that can help to restore brokenness and breathe new life.

The Japanese art of Kintsugi is a technique for repairing pottery with seams of gold. The gold makes a feature of the cracks instead of hiding them. All of us have broken pieces, but instead of hiding them, we can learn from them. We can discover treasure in our scars.

There can be many golden threads that help to restore a sense of hope, bringing healing and wholeness. Counselling offers a safe space to gently explore and bring clarity. It can be the calm on the other side of chaos or a way of weaving a new beginning, whilst processing a painful past.





The counselling relationship can firstly offer a safe space; it can be a buffer for present stressors or the calm in the storm. I may not be able to make the storm go away, but being understood by another without judgement can be a powerful catalyst for change. It will also help you begin to understand yourself much better and help you to cope in difficult circumstances. Importantly, I will equip you with the skills to manage your unique challenges and you will develop healthier coping strategies. In doing so, you will build resilience and find some inner peace.
