The Light Centre
7-9, Eccleston Street
I am an experienced integrative counsellor and I offer you a safe, non-judgemental and confidential place where we can explore whatever you bring to our sessions. Counselling is not about giving advice, providing solutions or ‘fixing’ behaviours but more about exploring, clarifying and accepting aspects of our lives and behaviour. It is from this new perspective that effective changes are made possible.
Our work together is usually informed by exploring your past and identifying patterns of behaviour that influence your everyday life and relationships. Equally important is our exploration of the here and now, focusing on any pressing concerns you may have and working on them together.
It’s important that you are aware of your own reactions and feelings in our sessions and are able to reflect on these with me. We can both learn from these insights and this knowledge will help us build a good working relationship together.
I work with adults across a broad range of issues, on a short-term or open-ended basis. I also have a special interest in working with addiction and addiction-related issues.
