I am a person centred counsellor with extensive experience working in an array of areas of concern. No two people are the same therefore, I work in a warm non-judgemental approach offering empathy, positive regard and honesty to each person.
I offer a safe environment to explore your thoughts, feelings and actions that once explored can bring clarity and understanding for you.
I understand how difficult it may be to discuss your thoughts and feelings with a complete stranger but once you've taken the first step, I can assure you, you will begin to feel at ease within the first session.
There is no magic cure for the things that happen in life that cause us pain or unpleasant feelings but with a willingness to explore these areas we can work together to understand, accept or change, in a way that is more acceptable to you.
Seeking counselling has taken courage which is something I never underestimate. Whether it's relationship difficulties, bereavement, anxiety or depression amongst many others I'm here for you.
I offer sessions that are flexible and adaptable to suit your needs.
