About me


I offer Individual, and Couples Person Centred Counselling weekdays and weekends by appointment.

Person Centred Counselling is an approach which empowers the client and allows them to determine the direction Counselling may go in so that they can address, process and resolve the issues they have brought to Counselling. I work with clients in an empathic way, seeking to understand their experience as fully as possible, both through what they tell me in sessions, but also through their body language and patterns of behaviour.

I offer a safe, non-judgemental space in which to explore issues and work with respect and consideration. I work with honesty, candour and aim to be as authentic as possible with all clients.

A variety of Counselling tools are available depending on the needs and interests of each client, these can range from journal keeping, to visualisations, breathing practices, colour and image work, and role play, to name just a few.
