Hi. As a qualified and committed counsellor I can offer you a safe, confidential and comfortable space where you can talk freely and openly about your concerns without the fear of being judged.
Nowadays, in our increasingly busy world, it is sometimes helpful to sit back and re-group. Together we can explore and make sense of the personal challenges you face today and can explore any areas and issues you feel you would like to address.
I focus very much on the relationship between client and therapist - a working relationship that is built on respect, trust and empowerment.
What is my approach?
I use an integrative approach which includes Psychodynamic work, Person Centred therapy, Transactional Analysis and Relational work. This allows flexibility and enables me to find the most suitable therapy for your individual needs - be this short or long term. I work in a non-judgemental and empathic way.
