'My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.’
By coming to counselling, you may sense that something isn’t right, but you can’t quite put your finger on it. Very often, people can make assumptions or jump to conclusions about what is going on, but they may not necessarily be correct. On the other hand, you might know exactly what the problem is. I invite you to come as you are with a willingness to explore a fuller picture of what may be happening for you right now at this point in your life. My hope is that you will gain greater confidence and trust in your own ability to thrive.
As life-long gardener, it has always seemed natural to create the best growing environment for the plants I grow. Applying this approach in counselling, I support clients in understanding what conditions they need to put in place to be content and healthy, both now and into the future.
I offer counselling to people and families affected by Klinefelter’s Syndrome. I have personal experience of the challenges, choices and subtle differences that exist for people living with this condition. I also work with people exploring their gender and sexuality.
Weekend and evening sessions available.
I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
