Entering into counselling can feel daunting and scary, taking that first step of making contact with a counsellor can (for some) be intimidating. However for many, it is the first step to making sense of ones life and life experiences.
I am a Person Centred counsellor located near Dunstable and Luton, Bedfordshire. I have worked with both adults and children for a range of issues including domestic abuse, anxiety, low self esteem to name but a few. As a person centred therapist I respect my clients autonomy whilst working in a safe, empathic and non-judgemental way. Building a therapeutic alliance with my clients enabling them to feel safe to explore their thoughts and feelings in a confidential setting.
