Hello and welcome, the thoughts and feelings we have about ourselves, affect how we communicate, the way we communicate affects our relationships and well being.
I am an integrated counsellor which means I can work with different types of therapies to meet your individual needs. Exploring the way you think and feel can develop your emotional intelligence and give you the knowledge to bring about the resolve you seek.
I am an individual and a therapist that believes change is possible.
As a therapist I offer: understanding, clarity and empathy, "empathy is the capacity to recognise feelings that are being experienced by another".

Areas of counselling I deal with
"I cannot teach anyone anything, i can only make them think"
"its not how many times you fall that matters, rather now many times you get back up"
"and the time came when the risk of staying as a tightened bud, was more painful than the risk it took to bloom"
"you will find when you look back upon your life, that the moments when you have lived, are the moments when you have done things, in the spirit of love"
"whether you think you can, or think you can,t, you're right"
