About me

I am a Person-Centred Counsellor and therapist with Thirty-two years of Mental Health, Counselling and Therapy working experience.

I offer individual personal therapy and counselling for anxiety, depression and life issues which are problematic to you at present.

You may be feeling quite vulnerable and unsure of how to make things better. My faith in your deeper wisdom and my ability to draw this out gently in a valuing way will help you explore your life options and find a direction that is right for you.

I am collaborative with clients to get a good rapport and use Person-Centred skills - genuine acceptance and empathic listening at a deeper level.

I have lots of experience at supporting clients in a compassionate and empathic way to help them find their true potential and deal with any feelings of worry stress or depression at the current time.

I also believe you will improve via your innate capacities and ability to have insights ( learning from within) when you feel safe and secure with me.

I work from my own home in a confidential manner.
