Welcome to my profile.
Often people come to counselling because they are in crisis or they are struggling with relationships. I will work with you in a way that is honest and empowering, enabling you to feel heard. I deeply value people and the uniqueness of their experience. Through reflection and attentive listening I will help you to identify your problems and discover more about your own strengths and capacity to make choices that will improve your sense of wellbeing and enhance your life.
I am a relational and an integrative counsellor. At times I may suggest that we work with interventions such as CBT, mindfulness or creative therapies for example, but this will depend on your needs and we will discuss this at the appropriate time.
I offer a free initial consultation which lasts for approximately 30 minutes. This session will allow you to decide whether counselling is appropriate for you at this time. Further sessions typically last for one hour and are usually on the same day and at the same time each week.
