Welcome to my page. I am a qualified and BACP registered Person Centred Counsellor. I offer a space for you that is non judgemental and met with empathy. My passion for counselling has evolved from my own experiences and has given me insight into how powerful therapy can be when life is at it's most challenging.
I work holistically considering the full range of emotional, mental and physical symptoms of internal conflict and distress. I create a warm welcoming environment for you to speak freely and be heard by me with a genuine care for your growth. I will enable you to explore your deeper concerns and vulnerabilities in a safe space. I help you find healthier ways to explore your path and live life to your full potential. This can mean exploring your emotions, and developing tools and thought patterns that inhibit your capacity to heal. From there, we can work together to enable you to grow confidently into the richness of your life. We can explore your distress, challenges or anxieties and I can walk with you on your journey.
