As a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist I offer a confidential and unique counselling service for individuals and couples who are facing challenges in their lives.
The foundations of the way I work lay in a person centred approach, and I have skills and strategies from a number of other approaches, so that the counselling experience can be tailored to meet the individual needs that may be required. I introduce creative interventions at times, only if we have contracted in the beginning that it is okay to do so.
I have awareness of 12 step recovery, which may be useful for people who are participating in a 12 step recovery programme for addictions, and of whom are looking for emotional support whilst following a programme of action.
I work in an authentic and holistic manner to facilitate individuals on their journey of soul searching, self discovery and connecting with their own inner guidance.
I have experience of working with those who face change in their lives as a result of grief, loss, relationship difficulties, struggles with codependency, abuse, depression, anxiety and those who are seeking to find their true self.
There may be the desire or need to explore past experiences in the 'here and now', to re-evaluate who we think we are, who we think we are not, and to how we are becoming.
I hope to offer a consistent time and space which will nurture a healthy relationship between us where new insights can be discovered.
