At the heart of my work is the belief that we all have within us the resources and wisdom we need to overcome difficulties. Counselling provides a private place to explore issues and relationships in a safe, accepting space. For many of us issues from the past, sometimes as far back as childhood, can affect our lives and relationships, and counselling is a way of re-visiting the past in a supportive way, so that new perspectives can arise. At other times we may have a sense of wanting to find meaning and potential in life, and counselling can help release creativity and find a new way forward.
I work in an integrative way, combining person-centred, psychodynamic and transpersonal approaches.
