About me

Upon finding your way here means that you have taken a great first step in seeking support, which I appreciate takes a lot of courage to do. I strongly believe that given the right space, time, tools and support it is possible for change to happen, that can have a longstanding positive impact.

I am a person-centred counsellor that practices in a pluralistic way, I provide specific support that is centred around each unique client I work with so that they may benefit from different approaches and tools that may be of benefit to the any presenting issue they bring to session.

I value the strength of an individual that seeks to find a space to share so that they may develop a deeper understanding of themselves or what they may have experienced, to enable you to live with deeper awareness, intention and peace.

I provide a space that facilitates safety and rapport so that any client I interact with feels secure and able to use the space to its full advantage.

Support looks different for everyone; I wonder what support might look like for you? If you feel like this might be something you would like to discuss further, please do not hesitate to contact me, whereby we can take the time to discuss how I may be able to support you.
