About me

Having worked for over thirty years in various communities engaged with and learning from many diverse and unique individuals I understand that life can throw up lots of unexpected hurdles which hinder our growth, development and ultimately our happiness.

As  a person-centred therapist I will offer the space and understanding for you to explore your feelings in a safe, non-judgemental environment.

As we journey together my desire is that you will soon discover your potential which will enable you to recognise how special and important an individual which (obviously) you are.

Sometimes picking up the phone or sending an email/text to a counsellor is one of the hardest things a person can do. However it's the first step on the road to rediscovery and that decision can be a life changing and positive step for you.

Our first session will involve some paperwork — not the most exciting thing but needs must — as well as explaining what therapy is and maybe more importantly what it isn't. We'll talk about trust and confidentiality and acceptance and hopefully — at some point — you'll soon realise that taking that first step was one of the best things you did.
