Hello, I provide counselling for individuals, and those in relationships. This maybe your first experience of counselling or you may have sought help in the past. Whatever your situation, counselling can often be the first step towards change, understanding and emotional wellbeing. Your first session is FREE with no obligation to continue.
I offer you the opportunity to talk and to explore any issues that may be affecting you, I am committed to providing effective counselling and psychotherapy in a safe and supportive environment, free from judgement and expectation.
Whether you have something pressing you wish to explore or you are looking for more balance in your life, we can talk about what is important to you in a safe and confidential environment, using approaches and techniques that can adapt to your needs.
The relationship between the counsellor and the client is very important. The first meeting is free, giving you the opportunity to decide whether I am the right counsellor for you. I work integratively, which means I work with flexibility, drawing on different theories and techniques which helps to meet the individual needs of clients.
I can offer both short term and longer term counselling. Your requirements can be talked through in more detail at our first meeting.
