I am a Person Centred counsellor and I see every person as a unique individual. We all have an innate drive to live our lives in the most fulfilled and satisfying way possible but sometimes our environment, our relationships or life events make this difficult or impossible and we become stuck and emotionally distressed.
I believe you have the ability to work things out for yourself but sometimes, in order to do that, you need a safe space and someone alongside you to listen in a non-judgemental way, offering empathy and honesty, an environment where you feel safe to explore the issues that are distressing or troubling you, and where you are free to express your thoughts, emotions and feelings. I will help you look at things that you may not have looked at before - maybe they are too confusing or too painful; maybe you feel anger or shame; perhaps you’re feeling depressed or anxious.
I will do my utmost to support you and hold you in that safe space, enabling you to become more self-aware, encouraging personal growth and helping you to be more in control of making the sort of positive changes you want to experience in your life. I believe the relationship between client and therapist is the keystone to successful counselling and I work relationally, in an emotion-focused way where appropriate.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and bound by their ethical framework (visit www.bacp.co.uk for more information).
As an Approved Counsellor with Barnardo's Adoption Agency I am registered to provide Adoption Counselling.
