About me

We are all individuals and I am able to tailor the way I work to my clients' particular goals and needs. Based largely on the person-centered core model, I aim to create a space where it feels safe to talk about the things that are of concern without feeling judged. Central to this approach is the relationship between the counsellor and the client, establishing trust  to enable the client to explore issues in their own time and in their own way.

I often draw on my 40 years experience working in the private, public and voluntary sectors to bring a down-to-earth reality into my client work. I understand the world of work and the impact it has on our day-to-day lives and can offer support to clients facing redundancy, stress at work and important career decisions.

Where appropriate, I also integrate elements of coaching and solution focused therapy into my work both short and long term.

I am experienced in helping clients with a faith background and those exploring their sexual identity.
