"People start to heal the moment they feel heard" (Cheryl Richardson.com)
I wonder as you read the above quote what this means to you?
I know for myself working as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist, and having sat in that chair as the client as well, that this quote is true. The moment we are heard, truly heard, that is the moment we can start healing. The moment we can realise and believe that we do not have to be alone with our problems.
People come to counselling for many different reasons, and your reasons for coming to see me will be personal to you. By coming to see me, I will offer you a safe and confidential environment, where you can identify, shed light upon and deal with your reasons for coming to counselling.
Together we can explore and reflect upon what you feel needs to change in your life. Together we can look at alternative ways of managing these thoughts, feelings and emotions, leading to greater self-knowledge and understanding of relationships not just with others, but importantly yourself. Coming to counselling can be a rewarding and life changing experience. You do not have to struggle alone, I am here to help. Take the plunge, you are worth it.
Phone me for a free consultation where we can discuss what it is you want from your counselling. Or alternatively email with a time when it is convenient for you to talk, and I will call you back.
To help you make the right choice I work with adults from the age of 18 years on an individual basis. I do not work with couples.
I work as an integrative therapist, which means rather than staying with one model of counselling, I use a combination of models and approaches from different theories. I trained in this discipline as I believe this means I can tailor your therapy to your specific needs. I am always happy to discuss my integrative approach and answer any questions.

I offer appointments Monday to Friday, 11am to 5pm and appointments on a Monday and Wednesday evening up until 7pm.
As a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy I adhere to their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions (2016), which means I ensure that you the client, are my primary concern when we work together.
I ensure this by working to a professional standard which entails being clear as to what you the client can expect from our time together, and the cost and commitment this will require. By being honest at all times about our work together, and working ethically and responsibly at all times.
