About me

My passion in life is people, from a very early age I was interested in understanding what made people feel the way they do. It is this passion that motivates me to help people feel better. I work with both individuals and couples.

My qualified approach is Person Centered Counselling, this style of counselling believes in the ability and qualities of an individual to determine what it is that will make them feel better. My role is to facilitate a person’s journey by providing them with a safe place to explore and understand their feelings. I do this without judgement or recriminations and dedication to helping a person gain clarity on past experiences and how they may be affecting how they feel in the present, which in turn can impact on their future.

I pride myself, and my ability to put people at ease and am often told that people find me easy to talk to. I find this helps in building an effective counselling relationship, as all too often people fear taking that first step in coming to counselling. I firmly believe giving your self the opportunity and time to work through any potential issue is the best investment a person can make in themselves.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I have a special interest in relationships and working with couples, I believe the effect of an unhappy relationship can ripple into other aspects of our lives and can also have an effect on those close to us. Sadly couples often leave it too late to access support believing that nothing can be done to find happiness again in their relationship. But relationships can be turned around with the dedication and willingness to change and learning again to relate to each other differently.
