About me and my therapy practice

As a person-centred counsellor, I offer a warm, non judgmental and confidential environment, a safe place where you can be yourself.

I believe that the relationship between therapist and client is paramount, and together we can explore your thoughts and feelings at your own pace, so you feel listened to and comfortable in our sessions.

Person-centred counselling was originally developed by the psychotherapist Carl Rogers, and emphasises on the qualities of the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist.

Rogers believed that all individuals have the ability for growth and enhancement, and healing can occur within the relationship if the client feels they are being valued, understood and accepted.

Person-centred therapy can help people change the way they think and feel about themselves and therefore facilitating a positive change.

I, as the therapist will enter into your world alongside you, to support you on your counselling journey.
