I offer counselling and empathic listening to individuals and couples. Through genuine relating, I hope to create a climate in which greater awareness, clarity and self-acceptance emerges. My approach is Humanistic and Integrative, drawing on a variety of models and processes. I have been learning and training others in Compassionate Communication and Conflict Resolution for 11 years, and this informs my counselling practice. I also teach Focusing, and this body-based meditative way of listening to ourselves, helps to soften self-judgement and eases inner conflict.
I work with long- and short-term clients, usually once a week. I see a benefit in committing to the work regularly, and I value being flexible - responding individually to each person's issues and circumstances.
