Whatever your reasons for considering therapy, I know it takes a lot courage to even contemplate starting a journey towards becoming a different-you. It can be challenging to make changes which really last; it requires patience and a willingness to be open and sometimes vulnerable. However, the rewards for taking this journey can be profound and life-changing.
I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor, Coach and Personal Consultant, trained in a variety of talking-therapies (including Compassion Focused Therapy and Coaching). This means I can work with you more creatively in different ways, respecting your preferences and meeting your specific needs.
I will always offer you a warm, supportive, non-judgemental space and encourage us to: work as a team, focus on the quality of our relationship and reflect on the extent of your progress. All of these are really important in supporting lasting change.
I would see it as my privilege to accompany you on this important journey.

During this initial meeting, we will explore together what you need and if I am the right person to accompany you on your change-journey and how we might best work together.
