I am a qualified therapeutic counsellor with experience of working within health and social care services.
My practice is grounded in my firm belief that we are all valuable, worthy and special, despite what others and the world might say about us. We are all born unique but the influences around us shape who we subsequently become but it is possible to become comfortable with our true self and at peace within.
"The curious paradox is when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change." - Carl Rogers
My aim is to walk alongside you as you journey towards finding out who you really are and not who your life experiences have forced you to be. I will work with you to help you to grow and make positive changes in your life and to help you manage anxiety, depression, stress, bereavement and all that life tends to throw at us. I would like to help you to build you self-confidence if you have low self-esteem and I am able to understand the pressures related to caring on your relationships and other areas of your life.
My hope is that you can feel comfortable, safe and secure, within the knowledge that I do not judge you but empathise, affirm and value you as a person, acknowledging the courage you have had in recognising that you need support, which I feel privileged to be able to provide. Most of all, I care about you and want you to thrive, so whatever you are finding difficult it is always possible to feel better.
I look forward to meeting you and beginning our journey together, towards a better and more positive future.
"What I am is good enough if I would only be it openly" - Carl Rogers
