About me

There are moments in life when we are simply overwhelmed by our experiences. We desperately try to cope, sometimes not understanding what is happening to us.

Realising we need help and making a decision to get support can be a difficult process and one that is not made easily.  That is why I work hard to make sure once you have made a decision to get help that you get access to support in a simple and uncomplicated flexible manner.

I am more than happy for you to ring me beforehand and ask any questions that you may have about the counselling or how I can support you.

As a fully qualified and experienced counsellor, I offer a constructive, grounded, person centred approach to individuals in a safe and confidential environment. My aim is to help you explore and gain clarity on aspects of your life and to resolve problems which are troubling you.

I work with people on a wide range of problems and find that people come to counselling with problems that are sometimes difficult to define - a sense of confusion about their lives and about whom they are, a lack of direction, a loss of meaning or joy in living, difficulties in relating to others or in sustaining good relationships.

My approach

Experience has taught me that everyone who comes to counselling brings with them a unique set of circumstances, background, values and beliefs. Consequently, I do not believe that "one size fits all" and I do not offer ready-made solutions. Instead, I tailor my approach to the requirements of the person using a client led integrative approach.

My role is to work with you to clarify your problems and explore possible solutions in a way that respects who you are and your situation in life. I work in an active and engaged manner, believing that open dialogue is an important element in effective counselling. Depending on the nature of the issues, my approach can be quite practical and solution-focussed, but I also place a strong emphasis on self-understanding.

Making contact

If you would like to make an appointment, then simply e-mail me by using the link on this page or telephone me on the above number. I will get back to you as soon as I can.

The first meeting is a chance to meet and explore your situation. This will also give you a better idea of what support is available and how it can be adapted to suit your needs. After that meeting I like clients to then take some time to decide if they feel I am the best solution for them. I think it is incredibly important to get your support right which means you feel that I am the right person to provide that for you.

If we agree to continue, I will usually suggest a fixed number of meetings at first (normally between four and six), which we can extend or reduce later as we conduct regular assessments together during the therapy.

I am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and I am also listed on their Accredited Voluntary Register.

If you have any further questions please contact me. Please be advised if I am busy with a client I have an answering machine. If you don’t want to leave a message leave a number and I will call you as soon as I am free.
