About me

My approach to therapy is to treat each client with dignity, integrity, care and compassion in a non-judgemental environment. I can help you make sense of the issues you are facing, by encouraging you to share what is worrying you, and giving you the opportunity to be listened to.

Each session is an opportunity to feel truly seen and heard in a way that can be deeply healing, providing a safe and confidential environment to enable you to explore your thoughts and feelings. This will bring about awareness and the ability to recognise and accept more aspects of yourself and how you relate to other people and situations.

My approach is not prescriptive, but is designed to help you to find your inner resources, discover new ways of living, and make positive changes to enrich your life. You will find yourself better able to deal with problems related to life circumstances and events, such as loss and grief, marital difficulties, abuse or traumatic events, ageing parents or adolescent children.
