About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified counsellor with a warm, non-judgemental approach and experience of working with a wide range of emotional difficulties.

I can offer you a safe, supportive space to explore how you’re feeling, or look at a specific situation in your life that brings you discomfort, pain or unhappiness.

I can help you to work through your difficulties and create the possibility for things to change. Through developing your self awareness it can become possible for you to feel more balanced and like you have more choices available for how you want to live.

Counselling can be a challenging process, as you navigate aspects of yourself that you might normally keep hidden. It can also bring relief, to know that these parts of you can be heard and accepted in a non-judgemental and safe space.

My background is in Humanistic counselling, and I work mainly from the Gestalt perspective, which means I am interested in all that you bring of yourself, mind, body, soul, spirit, and will endeavour to find with you new ways of making sense of your experiences. In sessions I might invite you to use a range of creative ways to express or communicate your thoughts and feelings, as it’s not always possible to do this with words.

Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like a brief phone consultation to find out whether the way I work could be supportive for you.
