About me

Searching for a counsellor can be daunting but is the first step towards making positive changes to your life and how you feel. I offer the first session at a reduced rate so that you can see if you feel comfortable with me and make a decision whether to proceed. I will listen carefully to your concerns and help you to explore them so you can come to a greater understanding of yourself. From this comes the opportunity for more choices and greater freedom, benefits that will stay with you throughout your life.

You may arrive at our first session with a specific difficulty you want to discuss, or you may be struggling generally with anxiety, depression, relationship issues or feeling unfulfilled. There is no right or wrong reason to come for counselling. I will help you to feel comfortable and accepted so that you can open up at your own pace. We can work together for a fixed short-term period or open-ended so that we can see what evolves.

I have twenty years experience working with people from a variety of backgrounds in a self-development capacity. I have trained in several therapeutic approaches as I consider each to have their own benefits, for example the Psychodynamic approach is helpful for understanding how your past experiences are being enacted in the present, the Person-Centred approach ensures the therapeutic relationship has the necessary core conditions so you can thrive, and Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy gives you clear and practical ways of managing your thoughts and feelings. I will tune in to you as an individual and taylor my approach to your needs. I am passionate about therapy and the benefits it can have on your life, and continue to evolve personally and professionally so that I can help you the best way I can.
