Taking the first step to find a counsellor can be a daunting experience and as such I am happy to have an initial 20 minute telephone session, free of charge.
Whatever your counselling needs, I provide my clients with a safe space where you can be yourself and that allows us the time to work through together whatever you are dealing with.
I strongly believe in the relationship between client and counsellor and that every individual has the right to be given that time to be heard, allowing for personal growth, walking side by side with my client supporting them on their counselling journey.
I use an integrative approach to counselling, which means that I use different counselling skills to suit that individual person - including Person Centred, Gestalt, psychosynthesis, CBT and Psychodynamic Counselling.
I can work creatively with all, including the use of visualisation.
