About me


I am a Humanistic Person-Centred Therapist, which means the foundation of my work is built on trust and openness. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings, that you may be finding difficult to cope with at this moment in time.

I do not lead the subject matter of the session, I feel it is important for you to talk about what you want, when you want. I feel this style of therapy really enables you to gain control, not just of what you are saying but of what you are feeling and in turn will help you towards gaining control of your life once again. To be within a space where you are being heard and recieving empathy is so important. To be listened to and not judged sadly is something that doesn't happen very often in our busy lives.

There are other styles of therapy that I have had training in and I will adopt aspects of these to work with your specific needs and issues that you present to me.

If you would like to contact me for an initial meeting, you can do so by phone or email.

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
