About me

Counselling is a therapeutic relationship where both current and past issues can be talked about with confidence and confidentiality. Counselling is not about instruction or advice giving, but the forming of a 'bespoke' relationship, which allows us to work together with respect.

In addition to my work with adults, I work extensively with adolescents and those in training to become counsellors, either as their therapist or supervisor.

I recommend an informal, initial session for anyone who is considering counselling for the first time.
