- My hope is to offer you a compassionate space to be heard and to discover a way forward. At the heart of my work is the healing potential of the therapeutic relationship. My desire is to meet and be alongside you as you draw on your inner strength and creativity in what can be very challenging circumstances.
My experience comes from my role as a practice counsellor in several G.P surgeries. I had the privilege of supporting many different people from all walks of life. I love my work and can offer both short and long term counselling.
My approach to counselling is intuitive and creative, attending to what's happening for you right now, whilst giving respect and time to earlier experiences. Being committed to my own personal growth, I deeply believe that this way of being helps us understand ourselves better. Through counselling our lives and our relationships can be enriched .
I want to acknowledge the anxiety around deciding to come for counselling. It takes courage to reach out for help. Please do not hesitate to ask me anything you may need to know to make a good choice .
