Further information

My aim as a counsellor is to establish a strong therapeutic relationship offering a non-judgemental approach, in which I will endeavour to walk with you every step of the way on your journey, within a safe, confidential and friendly environment for adults, teenagers and young children to talk freely and you will be treated with the utmost respect and dignity.

My style of counselling is known as integrative offering short or long term work. I primarily use a person-centred approach whilst integrating other techniques as CBT and psycho-dynamic if and when appropriate allowing to help improve your awareness of yourself. My role is to listen, truly understand and help build the foundation for growth this means I provide an empathic and genuine approach to establish and build upon a trustworthy therapeutic relationship.

If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.
