I'm aware it takes courage to begin counselling and I aim to make you feel safe and welcome.
I offer an initial, 30 minute, consultation to explore and clarify your needs. There is no fee for this session. We will meet and discuss what it is you're hoping to get from counselling and what I can offer you as a counsellor. This is an important session where we can talk through what is involved in the counselling process. It offers us an opportunity to meet and see if we feel we can work together.
What does therapy involve?
The capacity to talk about your life, feelings, emotions, relationships, ways of thinking and patterns of behaviour with someone you trust. We all need a little help at times and I aim to offer you a space where you can take a fresh look at your issues and understand them a bit better, giving you new choices about how to live your life.
It can be a deep process. My job is to facilitate this by being open, non-judgemental and encouraging. Helping you to rediscover your strengths and resources, to gain clarity, confidence and a more robust sense of self.

Training, qualifications & experience
I started work in the caring professions as a nurse in 1983. After working with seriously ill and dying patients I felt there must be something more I could offer. This lead to my explorations of shiatsu (a hands-on body therapy), deep healing energy work and spirituality.
I realised that awareness and understanding of our issues is core to deep and lasting healing. I feel counselling offers a space where one can gain a new perspective and insights into the situations that are troubling us.
Drawing on my wealth of experience I offer an integrated, holistic approach for clients.
