About me

Welcome,

You have most probably come across this page as you are thinking about accessing counselling for yourself or for someone else.

Counselling offers you the space to explore issues that are causing you distress, confusion or concern; with someone will not tell you what to do, judge or reproach you. Your Counsellor is trained to offer therapy by helping you understand yourself and your feelings and emotions, by encouraging you to explore your options in a safe and trusting environment. Most importantly your Counsellor will help you to understand why you are feeling a certain way, how your problems arose and help you to learn how to avoid similar problems arising again. You and your counsellor will sit down together in a room for a fixed period and this time is just for you to talk about whatever is troubling you from your perspective. Your counsellor will listen actively to what you say, reflecting back some of this, with the aim of enabling you to recognize and explore your feelings around the matter.

I am based in Leominster, Herefordshire, in a confidential and comfortable counselling room and also provide counselling from a clinic in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire  I can provide telephone/online therapy or can do home visits if necessary.

Please don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have using the 'Email me' button on this site or the contact form on my website.
