About me

Whatever issues you are facing in your life I offer support with compassion, kindness and without judgement. I will draw on my experience and therapeutic knowledge as well as my belief that together we will discover the resources you have to meet the challenges you face.

  • I understand it can take courage to talk to someone about your feelings and will provide a safe and confidential space.
  • Through challenging limiting beliefs and thoughts with kindness my approach facilitates an opportunity for lasting change.
  • I will bring my experience and skills as well as my belief that you are the expert of your world.
  • I will support you to bring the past into the context of the present to see what meaning this has in your life now. In this approach there is room for acceptance of what has gone before and a chance to let go of patterns that limit the present.
  •   I will support you to find your own answers and resources to become more resiliant and able to manage the tough times in your life.
  • I work in a relational way, so creating a trusting relationship with care and compassion is key to the work I do.
  • When appropriate and always with consent I may work with Sand Tray or other creative mediums to help bypass the mind and support the therapy process.
  • I offer a free first session so you can experience the way I work and see if you feel I am the right Counsellor for you to work with at this time.  Please email or call me to arrange this on the above details.
