As a counsellor I strive to create a safe, receptive environment so that my clients can address their problems with a feeling of security and trust. I believe that by creating a climate of trust clients can reach a deeper level of insight and awareness from which their problems can be addressed. Above all, I am open to the possibilities that counselling can offer and believe that the suffering that brings someone to counselling presents an opportunity for personal growth and psychological development. Prior to becoming a counsellor I taught yoga for ten years and I have been a dedicated practitioner of mindfulness for over twenty five years. While I draw on a variety of different methods including dreamwork, my primary method is to listen to each client and help them discover their best possibilities.
