About me and my therapy practice

Hello and welcome to my profile. You are reading this because you have made the first very brave step of finding a counsellor in your time of need. I know how scary this is as I have been in your shoes so what I would like to say is well done!

Although I can not fix you I can and will be there for you whilst you unravel whatever thoughts and emotions you may be experiencing. I am an integrated counsellor, which means I work with different theoretical approaches and use the ones I feel will best benefit you. At the core of my work I am very person centred, which means I believe that you have the potential and ability to make the right choices for yourself and I will empower you to do that. 

I will always listen to whatever you want to say, you will have a safe, calm, non-judgemental space to talk about anything at all.

Thank you for reading my profile.
