About me

Hi my name is michelle and I am aware Choosing to start therapy can often feel daunting and terrifying. I understand this journey, both from a personal and from a theoretical perspective. So, I just want to say thank you for putting yourself out there, even know you may have feelings of apprehension.

I am a professionally qualified Humanistic Counsellor. My counselling is therefore shaped by the Person Centred approach. So what does this mean????.....I offer a safe space for you to explore your struggles, relationship difficulties, work related issues and worries in a confidential, respectful, non judgemental environment and with an empathic understanding. I will place myself in your frame of reference, offering a different perspective and challenge you. To do this i would ask you "How does that make you feel" when you have expressed a thought or situation to me.

I am an individual member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). This means my professional values, principles, code of conduct reflect my ethical commitment to the people I work with.
