About me

I am a fully qualified Person-Centred counselling therapist and registered member of the BACP. My Counselling approach is eclectic whereby I use a variety of techniques which suit you and your current issue. My experience has been working with clients with mental health difficulties who have been experiencing the pain of bereavement, anxiety and depression and stress related conditions. I work with clients who have low self-esteem and lack confidence to aid build a positive outlook and to change their mind-set and perspective. I am sensitive to the needs of my clients and work on building a trusting relationship in order for us to develop a foundation, to work together and create change for you, in the way in which you want and anticipate to happen.

Through Person-Centred counselling you will feel valued. This approach uses reflection as means for you to develop clarity in your awareness, to improve understanding of your issues, problems and reactions. This encourages insight into thoughts and behaviours that will allow you to make informed decisions. I will endeavour to help you in such a way that you are able to dissolve past anxieties that are creating a negative pattern for you and as such will facilitate you in developing in the way you choose.

I offer an opportunity for you to embark on a trusting relationship that can support you to achieve the goals you set. If you are new to counselling it can be a daunting prospect to choose a counsellor and attend an appointment, hence you will be welcomed in a friendly manor to open up and discuss your issues. Counselling can be very effective if you are willing to work towards change.
