About me


About Me

I am a Person Centred trained counsellor. This style of therapy allows a client to steer the direction of therapy and in the process, clarify and define their own goals. I also work in an integrative style meaning I value the use of a blend of therapeutic techniques to suit client individuality. I aim to work as part of a therapeutic relationship underpinned by respect and integrity. This is led by my understanding that the quality of the client - counsellor relationship is key to change.

About the counselling sessions

I offer time limited or open ended sessions, your choice. Sessions usually last up to an hour, although this can be discussed. The sessions can offer a confidential and of course non-judgemental 'space' to explore your issues at your pace.

In the first session some time will be spent 'outlining' and mutually agreeing/understanding issues such as confidentiality in the counselling relationship. This makes for a dependable and 'safe' environment. Sessions are reviewed regularly to make sure they are always appropriately tailored to your own goals.

I offer sessions on a Saturday. The building is accessible with ramp entrance and parking is on site and free. There is also a good bus and tram service to the area. More details are shown under the section entitled 'further information', below.
