We all face emotional difficulties at some point that may stop us from enjoying life as much as we would like, and talking to friends and family can be helpful but may not be available or enough.
I offer a free 30-minute session to explore together what your needs are and to give us a chance to see how we might work together therapeutically.
I am a qualified BACP registered counsellor with experience working with adults and young people and can offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space to explore your thoughts and feelings. I follow a person-centred approach which focuses mainly on 'the here and now' giving clients the chance to become more self-aware and to rethink patterns of behaviour and work towards change and growth.
I work in a gentle manner and will be guided by you with regard to the pace of our work together and will be sensitive to your individual process and journey.
