I offer professional, confidential counselling in a safe and supportive environment. My approach is integrative thus recognising that every individual is different and may need a different approach and I can tailor the therapy to what suits you best to manage your issues. I work primarily using a person-centred approach working ethically and empathically, with compassion and respect.
My aim is to work with you towards wholeness and a greater understanding of the self to enable you to live your life to the full with any issues causing difficulty, anger or sadness from the past or present. I offer a non-judgemental space to explore and facilitate change.
Counselling is an effective tool to help support with stress, low mood, anxiety and depression. It can also be used for relationship problems, family issues, bereavement, work-related issues, difficult life events and more. Being able to speak to an impartial and independent counsellor can help give a different point of view and think about things in a different way. Talking about issues is good for your mental health and overall wellbeing.
I am passionate about the work I do and the support offered at times when things seem overwhelming.
