About me

In a warm and welcoming environment, I offer the highest standards of ethical practice. My belief as a Counsellor/Therapist is that the counselling relationship is the key to any success in therapy and so I aim to ensure that you feel safe and comfortable from the start, this will hopefully enable you to dislcose and explore whatever has brought you to counselling without fear of any judgement. I hope that people see the 'realness' in me as their counsellor, rather than any mask or façade which can sometimes create a barrier. This realness has proved to offer the most productive outcome for many people.

Why not come along for a no obligation reduced rate first session, where we can discuss just what you need from your counselling. If you feel that I'm not right for you no offence will be taken, as this is about 'you' after all.
