Whatever you might be struggling with, I offer you the opportunity to work it through. I offer a free initial 30min appointment to enable you to meet me in person, I feel that it is very important that you find the counsellor that is right for you.
I am an experienced counsellor offering you warmth and understanding, without judgement. I offer ‘talking therapy’ which can enable you to:
- make sense of your situation
- understand yourself, your experiences and behaviour patterns more fully
- identify more rewarding ways of doing things
- work through relationship difficulties
- find your own answers, solutions and your own path
- identify any changes you may want to make and be supported to make them
- develop what you need to live your life more fully
- feel better about yourself and your life
Working with you, I will ………..
- accept you, as you are
- offer a calm, safe, unbiased and confidential place
- work alongside you, on an equal footing and at your pace
- help you identify what is troubling you or what it is you want
- help you to focus on what's most important to you
At the outset you may know exactly what you want or what is troubling you; or you may feel anxious, distressed or confused or angry and want to work out why, the reasons may emerge through our work together.
You can develop a greater understanding of yourself and your experiences by exploring your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. We may uncover important beliefs that underpin the way in which you deal with your life situation. This understanding can enable you to feel empowered, approach things differently and thus manage your situation. I enjoy my work as a counsellor and am passionate about the benefits of Counselling to enable you to find your own path and as a powerful healing process. It is both a responsibility and a privilege to be an active part of my client’s exploration and new understanding. I offer you my full commitment and dedication.
You are very welcome to contact me by phone or email, I am very happy to answer any questions you may have.

Supervision & training
I strive to work in a supervisee-centred way, respecting your process and unique way of working with your clients, what ever approach that might be. Over time my practice has broadened, and in line with client needs/requests I have integrated other styles of intervention whilst remaining fundamentally routed in the person centred approach.View supervision profile
