I am an Integrative Counsellor with my core approach based in Person Centred Therapy. I have experience working with clients with a wide range of issues and I draw upon different approaches to suit the individual needs of each person. I work in a person centred and non directive way. This means that I value you as a whole person and your ability to know what is right for you.
My aim is to create a safe and trusting environment to enable you to share your problems and feel heard. I provide short and long term counselling in the Wells, Glastonbury and Shepton Mallet areas.
