About me and my therapy practice

My personal experience of counselling at a difficult time in my life, informs my trust in the value of counselling and its potential to heal.

I am a person centred counsellor which means I work from the fundamental belief, that in the presence of certain conditions offered by the counsellor, therapeutic change can happen. I believe that counselling can help make sense of life experiences and what it means to be you - and in the process of doing so, achieve a greater level of self-awareness and self-acceptance. I believe that it is in telling the story of who we are, discovering our wounds and vulnerabilities, bringing them into the light, that the work of healing can begin.

I have an authentic, warm and gentle presence that invites clients to feel safe enough to share their issues confidentially and without feeling judged. I welcome working with a wide range of issues which could include any of the following: anxiety, depression, addictions, living with another’s addictions, loss, bereavement, self-esteem, sexuality, gender, faith, spirituality, boarding school survival etc.

"...deep understanding is, I believe, the most precious gift one can give to another.” Carl R. Rogers
