I am a qualified counsellor in Emotional Therapeutic counselling and an Accredited Member of the National Counselling Society.
Emotional Therapeutic Counselling is a person-centred therapy based on the belief that many of our struggles in life are emotionally based and that our feelings do not always respond to logical thought. Therefore working with your emotions and feelings rather than with your mind can help you heal and cope with your worries.
Research suggests that the therapeutic relationship itself is more important for a good outcome than a particular type of therapy. This means that if your therapist succeeds in helping you to feel safe, accepted and treated with respect and perhaps also challenges you in a positive constructive way, you are more likely to be able to make good use of your sessions.
I have been fortunate to have enjoyed a varied career in the city and latterly having owned a successful corporate floristry businesses.
I have travelled extensively giving me a wider understanding of different cultures and viewpoints.
