I am a compassionate Counsellor with experience of helping people to explore their issues within a non-judgemental environment. I use a person-centered approach to counselling as I believe each person is the best 'expert' of themselves and has the resources within themselves to resolve difficulties they are facing when provided with the right environment to explore them.
I have experience working with adults and young people in various areas of the community; including schools and surgeries.
I specialise in therapeutic work with teenagers and young adults, in particular with those in education.
I aim to offer a warm, non-judgemental, acceptant and reflective space and to facilitate my clients to achieve whatever they are in search of when they come to counselling.
Please do get in touch if you have any queries or are interested in booking an introductory session.
