About me and my therapy practice

Life's pressures can make us feel unsure of ourselves and this can make us feel unhappy and unable to talk to someone, It takes courage to come to counselling but your not on your own.

My work is based on a diversity of approaches, collating together Person Centred, CBT and psycho-dynamic by taking this approach I provide a range of interventions to find ways that can help each unique client resolve their individual needs. It is important to understand that the client is the expert in their needs and by working with me to find life solutions to work towards reducing that anxiety, combating that depression and conquering that self doubt. It is from that I pride myself on being able to create a therapeutic relationship, allowing the client to be heard, to explore and consider solutions and new possibilities for their future in a non-judgemental therapeutic relationship.  It creates an environment for the client to feel safe, secure and ensuring that they will be treated with the upmost respect and dignity at all times and confidentiality remains a priority within the practice. 

Practice description
