About me

Making the decision to seek counselling is your first courageous step toward change.  Whether that change is about making huge life-altering decisions, or about better self-understanding and self-acceptance, I can be with you on that journey.

I offer my clients a safe space in which to explore their unsafe places. As a qualified, registered person-centred counsellor I believe that working with you in a non-judgemental, empathic and genuine way creates the most effective environment for you to explore your problems and fears.

The person-centred approach to counselling puts emphasis on the client being at the centre of their process. I believe that the relationship between the counsellor and the client is one of the most important factors in clients getting the positive outcomes they want from their therapy. I work in an empathic, non-judgemental and genuine way to help build that important foundation of trust between us. I believe that you are the expert on your own life and that exploring your problems with me in a therapeutic relationship based on trust, authenticity and compassion can help you to get to where you need to be at this time.

I am a qualified counsellor on COSCA's Register that has been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority. This is in recognition of my commitment to high standards.
