I am a professionally qualified Person-Centred counsellor and personal development coach based in Gloucester. I will help you to talk through and make sense of the thoughts and emotions causing you anxiety and any relationship issues that you want to resolve.
As a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), I adhere to their code of ethics, which includes a commitment to my ongoing continuous professional development, and the input and support of a qualified counselling supervisor.
Offering you a safe and confidential space
I believe that the most supportive counselling relationship is one where you feel able to explore your emotions and thoughts in a confidential space, where you are accepted for who you are, and where you feel free from judgement or criticism.
My own experience has been one where having the support of others (including a counsellor) has helped me to get through some of the difficulties and challenges I have faced. This support has enabled me to become more self-aware and to work through my own periods of depression.
I am committed to empowering others to reach their potential by working with them to understand their own needs, develop a stronger sense of themselves, and find ways to work through the difficulties that have become areas of challenge, discomfort, or pain.
Working at your pace and to your agenda
I believe that it is important to work at your pace and to your agenda, in a way that will help you to work out how to best address the challenges you are facing. I also believe that you will need encouraging, motivating, and appropriate challenge, to help you make the progress you want to see.
Working with me
I offer 50 minute sessions from an office just a 10 minute walk from the town centre in Gloucester; nearby to Longlevens, Kingsholm, and Tuffley. I can also work with you via Skype, telephone, or email. Depending on your needs, I can provide both short-term and open-ended counselling.
