How I can help
I am calm,warm, gentle and accepting creating a atmosphere that is safe respectful, sensitive and confidential which over time I feel will give you the confidence and courage to explore freely deep painful issues. The process of exploring problems increases insight and understanding it will enables you to facilitate change and patterns of behaviour, finding more positive ways of coping with painful emotions, therefore allowing personal growth to take place and you will feel better equipped to continue in life.
Is person-centred, however over the past 15 years I have found myself using other approaches to accommodate my client’s individual needs such as Transactional Analysis (TA), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and also Creative Intervention where appropriate inner child work.

This will give us the opportunity to explore what counselling is, your expectations of counselling and will also allow each of us to ask questions without being judged. The session will be carried out in a warm, safe, caring and confidential environment. This will be our chance to see whether we can establish a mutual trusting relationship.
There will be no pressure to commit to further sessions, you can go away and think before you make a decision to enter into a counselling relationship.
