About me

Depression, anxiety, relationships, general feelings of sadness or that life has become out of control are just some of the issues that can affect our ability to manage day to day life and maintain a healthy work/life balance. I believe that talking therapy is the best way for you to find answers and I hope that together we can find the right solution for you. I work in a person-centred way which means that our time together is focused on you, the client, and your well being. The person-centred approach is a powerful form of counselling which can lead to permanent and  life long changes in how you see and experience yourself and the world around you. I will actively listen to you so that I can understand what it's like to be you living your life and I will accept you and your story without any judgement or making assumptions about what I think might be best for you. I believe that you will know what's best for you as you are the only expert in your world of thoughts, feelings and experiences. Sometimes life can feel overwhelming and you can feel lost, so I will work with you to enable you to discover the right direction for you to move forward towards positive change.

I provide a confidential and secure space for us to work together to help you lead a more fulfilled life. I am committed to providing professional counselling for you to work through your problems in a trusting and reliable environment. I am accredited with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy which means they have endorsed and approved my work as a safe, ethical and effective therapist.

Every client is different, with different needs, and each person moves forward at their own pace so it is important that your needs are met and you decide how many sessions you need.
