I am a professionally qualified Person-Centred Counsellor and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).
My work is founded on the experience that, no matter where we find ourselves in life, we always have the potential to work through our problems and make our lives more satisfying, fulfilling and contented.
We can access that potential through experiencing the right therapeutic environment – and it is this environment of trust, understanding, compassion and respect that I aim to provide in my work with adults of all ages.
I work with individuals for a range of initial reasons, such as self-esteem, depression, loss, anxiety, anger, relationships, identity problems, personal growth, and fears over existence and meaning in life. The work we do together also helps clients to make sense of things from the past, so that they can move on and forward in their lives.
It is this journey of personal recovery, self-discovery, growth and transformation that is my passion as a therapist – a journey towards a more fulfilled and contented life.
