Welcome to my profile
Sometimes the burden of life can be overwhelming, especially when you are feeling
Alone, and Isolated.
Whether you are struggling with Anxiety, Depression, Relationships Issues, Divorce, Bereavement, Work related Stress, Anger,Eating disorders or one of the many other issues negatively affecting your life.
By seeking out Counselling you are taking a step forward, to bring about Positive Change.
I provide a Safe, Confidential, Non-judgemental Environment to support you to gain insights, and awareness, of the possible underlying root causes, of the crisis, and conflicts, affecting your life.
I operate primarily from a person centred approach, being mindful that human beings need to feel
Valued, and Respected before positive change can come about.
I am guided by, and incorporate, an eclectic, integrative approach.There is no one Counsellor, or style of Counselling that suits all, we are all unique, and different,
Therefore it's important that the Counsellor, and Client feel connected, which forms the basis of the Counselling relationship.
Prior to booking the first session, I am available by telephone or email, to answer any questions you may have.
Once Counselling begins, i will support you every step of the way to develop the inner resources to bring about positive change, in your life circumstances, and relationships.

I can offer short, or long term Counselling, along with open ended Counselling
On the first visit we can use the session to discuss, how we might work together, exploring your hopes and expectations from the counselling process. Along with giving you the opportunity to decide if i am the right counsellor for you.
The most important part of the Counselling relationship is a feeling of connection, from one human being to another, without this connection the process is unlikely to work.
When clients come along to counselling they are usually feeling overwhelmed, and confused.
The service I offer is upfront, and transparent from the outset. which provides a clear foundation of our working practice.
Alongside my professional Qualifications, and experience, I work from an intuitive (gut feeling) perspective, which adds an extra dimension, when verbal communication is difficult.
Human beings communicate as much non-verbally as they do verbally, which is a valuable part of the counselling process.
You will always feel Valued, Accepted, Listened to and Respected, as the foundation of our work together.
