About me

About You

I am a registered member of the BACP. I offer a non-judgemental, confidential, and warm therapeutic space where you will be heard. As a person-centred counsellor, I recognise (as explained by Carl Rogers, 1980) you are your own best expert - I respect your absolute ability to become the person you wish to be through accessing those qualities within you as you work through those aspects of your life currently causing you discontent.  I value your individuality and uniqueness and I will avoid labelling you. By working in a sensitive, ethical, and compassionate way I aim to earn your trust as you journey toward the person you wish to be.

My Experience

I have experience of working with clients who are struggling with a variety of issues.  Those struggles include bereavement and loss through death by suicide, loss of a child, partner, or parent, miscarriage, abortion, and adoption. I also have experience of working with clients who suffer from work related stress, general anxiety disorder, low self-esteem, childhood abuse, neglect, relationship issues or feelings of loneliness

I absolutely recognise and value that your experience is unique, and how you choose to move forward is your choice, and within your power.

What I Can Offer You

Person-centred therapy is a talking therapy where, as your counsellor, I will give you space and time to talk.  I am here to listen to and hear you and support you through your journey in a warm, empathic, accepting, and confidential space.  I offer you therapeutic time that is yours to work out what is going on, exploring your inner experiences and hopes until you find the version of yourself you wish to be.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I recognise that the workplace can sometimes be difficult and it can feel like there is no one to talk to about what is happening for you, and how you feel. Sometimes changes happen and it can feel disconcerting. Most work places provide support through HR, but sometimes you need someone else to talk to.
