About me and my therapy practice

I offer myself as a friendly caring and  supportive counsellor. I use  the person centred approach as the base of my work with you, which aims to help you understand yourself better and what your needs are. By exploring what is going on for you in a safe empathic and supportive environment and being heard and understood without judgement will provide for you a way to find your true self, see more clearly what things need to change and how you can change them. 

At some point in our lives we could all benefit from talking openly to someone who is not biased, who wont give opinions or judge us. To explore what we really feel and our reactions to situations. Most issues come from our relationships, with others or the world, life or ourselves. The most important of these is the one we have with ourselves. Counselling can help us reach inside and discover and understand ourselves better and find our solutions to a happier relationship with ourselves and our life.

I also offer counselling through online video/webcam via a safe protected platform called It is HIPAA and GDPR compliant meaning I can offer you a safe and secure way of sharing whatever you feel the need to bring. There is nothing for you to download just a simple link to follow to my private "therapy room". You may feel more safe and able to open up by not meeting in person or you may feel restricted by time, meeting online via a webcam allows us to be face to face enabling the therapeutic process to flow in a similar way to meeting in person. It does however mean you have to make for yourself a safe and quiet place fee of interruptions where you will not be overheard and of course a safe and reliable device with a webcam.

If you feel you are ready to start or continue that journey I will be honoured to share the space with you.

Counselling can help.
