Welcome to my profile. I am an experienced and fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, offering short-term and long-term counselling to adults, young people and children.
I aim to provide a safe and confidential environment where feelings can be explored, and the patterns of thinking and behaviour that contribute to one’s difficulties can begin to reveal themselves. This growing awareness gradually opens the possibility for change, leading to increased satisfaction and a greater sense of authority in one's life.
My practice is warm, welcoming and confidential. It is easily accessible. I work within the Ethical Framework set out by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy of which I am a member (see www.bacp.co.uk).
Further information can be found on my website.
