About me

I am a person-centred counsellor. I am trained to help you help yourself. I offer you a dialogue in which I will not judge you. I will listen to you carefully, without judgement, and I will try to understand what your life feels like from your point of view. I will approach you in human solidarity and I will stand with you as you work out your next move. In all this I hope to help you to discover within yourself our own strength.

I work with people who feel anxious or overwhelmed by the demands of their lives, people who feel isolated and who need to talk things through. I accompany people who are struggling as they get older, or suffering with the pain of bereavement. I listen to people who have experienced bullying or people living with left-over feelings from difficult experiences. Finally, I help people who are feeling confused about who they have become.

I work with clients at their own pace and style. If client want, we can work with poems, or with their own writing.

I have a special interest in working with older clients and with carers.
