About me

I have been practicing person centred counselling for over 6 years, and I believe that a safe, non-judgemental and compassionate approach is key for healing.  To be listened to and accepted for where you are in your life is important.

Alongside listening, I offer counselling tools when needed to help.

If you prefer, we can chat initially about counselling via mobile or email.

Alternatively, in the first session I give details about how counselling works, and explore what it is you are looking for in counselling, to help you decide what's a good way forward for you.

I believe that healing comes from empowerment through increased self-awareness and self-esteem, and integration through self-acceptance. I have often witnessed transformation as spiritual in nature.

If you want to pursue counselling, we can meet on a weekly basis for as long as you feel you need to (typically 3 to 6 months).

I am married with two adult stepsons.
