I am an experienced Person-Centred Counsellor accredited with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and a UKRCP Registered Independent Counsellor (United Kingdom Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists). I am also a qualified Person-Centred Supervisor.
As a Person-Centred counsellor, I believe that you have the answers that you need within you, but sometimes it can be difficult to find the inner resources that are required to lead a fulfilled and balanced life.
I offer a non-judgemental, respectful and confidential environment where you can work through the particular areas of difficulty that you may experience.
I will not tell you what to do or give you advice but, together, we can journey towards a place where you feel more able to find your own way, drawing on your own resources and find an inner equilibrium and feel able to understand yourself better.
I would work with you in a non-judgemental way, respecting your autonomy, your values, your capacity for choice and your cultural context.
Sessions are confidential, which offers you the freedom to explore and talk about anything within legal limitations. Usually, a session lasts one hour and would often be weekly for as long as you find them helpful. Together, we can work out what would suit you best.
As an accredited member of the BACP, I am bound by its Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions and subject to the Professional Conduct Procedure.
