Hello, and thank you for visiting my profile.
Considering therapy can feel a big and scary step which is very personal and different for each of us. To struggle sometimes is a part of being human. Counselling challenges the notion that we should cope all of the time, and allows us to be human - to face up to difficulty, to understand our feelings and to find a more peaceful way of being.
I am a home based fully qualified Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor who is predominantly Person Centred. This means that I can work in a way that suits your specific needs. I can offer you a safe, confidential, and non judgemental space to talk about your life and anything that may be confusing, painful or uncomfortable. I want to work along side you in a respectful, empathic and gentle way, empowering you to make positive changes to your life and to support you through difficult and traumatic times and feelings. I have experience of working with adults and adolescents on a wide range of issues.
I deeply appreciate how hard it can be to make that first phone call, or send that first email when considering counselling. I invite new clients to come along for a free initial consultation so that we can meet and both get a sense of how we would work together. Lastly, of course please feel free to email or call me in the meantime regarding any anxieties or questions that you may have about the counselling journey.
