The Fairford Leys Centre
I am a qualified counsellor. I work in a gentle and supportive way and strive to create trusting relationships with my clients in which they feel safe enough to address their most difficult and painful thoughts and feelings. I help my clients reconnect with (and develop trust in) their inner resources so that they may discover their own solutions to the problems they are experiencing and make the changes that they seek.
I use an Integrative counselling approach combining Person-centred counselling with elements of Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), Transactional analysis and Psychodynamic therapy.
I work to high ethical and professional standards. I am a member of the British association for counselling and psychotherapy. I also hold an enhanced DBS certificate and Professional indemnity insurance.
