I am a professionally qualified and experienced Practitioner who is trained in person-centred counselling, using the Humanistic approach. I offer a compassionate, non-judgemental service, allowing you to share your experiences and explore your issues in a confidential, safe environment.
I first realised I wanted to be in a helping role when I volunteered at MIND several years ago. I felt an enormous amount of pleasure from working with clients on a 1-1 basis and seeing them progress through the process of therapy.
I am a genuine, caring person who offers a warm approach and a great deal of empathy. Together we will build a therapeutic relationship where you feel comfortable and safe enough to share your experiences and difficulties with me.
We will look at what your own unique individual needs are and through our counselling sessions, you will be provided with the opportunity to gain the tools you may need to move towards change.
I am aware of the constant pressures in life that are put on all of us, particularly with Social Media and I have a strong passion to empower others to recognise their worth and encourage growth.
I understand that looking for a Therapist can be confusing and very daunting, but can promise that I will do my absolute best to help you feel comfortable and at ease. Together we will work through your thoughts and feelings and help you gain the tools to achieve your full potential.
I hope this website has given you a sense of what I can offer, but please do feel free to contact me for a chat on 07756 696247 if you wish to discuss anything further, or email me.
