About me

I am a qualified person-centred counsellor from a background in professional care. I am a fully insured member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotheapists and abide by their ethical code of practice. I will bring my knowledge and experience to help you connect with all aspects of your being.

Sometimes we struggle to make changes in our lives which may affect those closest to us; by talking confidentially to a counsellor who won’t judge us and is empathic and accepting we can be helped through this process. I can help you unravel thoughts and feelings to find a way through difficulties.

Counselling can help you to manage conflicts within yourself and in relationships with family, colleagues and peers. I can offer a safe and confidential space to explore feelings of low self-worth, anxiety, depression, loss and bereavement, shame, guilt, and issues from the past that affect your life now.

Person-centred counselling focusses on your uniqueness and helps you to understand your experiences with your knowledge of yourself. Research shows that a trusting relationship with a counsellor (or psychotherapist) is more helpful to those seeking help than any particular techniques or methods.

Through experiencing ourselves differently and relating differently in a professional non-judgemental relationship we come to understand what it is we need to begin living in a way that is more satisfying and resourceful. I will work alongside you to find a way forward. My work is grounded in the belief that everyone has the potential for growth and change.
