I offer an integrated approach to counselling drawing from a range of modalities enabling me to tailor my counselling to your specific needs. I strive to provide a calm nurturing space where you feel safe and listened to in an atmosphere of warmth and acceptance. I am a BACP registered counsellor and adhere to their code of ethics and good practice. I work both short and long term but you are not committed to any set number of sessions.
Counselling can be a daunting experience and often clients have been struggling for a while on their own before seeking therapy. Statistics identify there are 70 million working days lost to mental illness in the UK each year which shows how prevalent stress and discord with life has become.
Counselling has been described as the process of holding a mirror up to your life thereby allowing you to see things from a different perspective. It is very much a collaborative process with my person centered roots I firmly believe you are the expert in your life and have the capability to heal and live in a more authentic way.
