About me and my therapy practice

During 26 years of working as a counsellor, I have counselled people struggling with the physiological, psychological & psycho-social impact of all types of abuse, historic and otherwise. Whatever people's presenting problem, or walks of life, I am a therapist who is passionate about life & love and helping others find their way back to who they truly are at the core, and live that unique life-expression to potential, a potential that oftentimes gets lost within the struggles of life.

Within the safe & supportive environment of the counselling session, and the empathetic and non-judgemental therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client, you will be encouraged and guided to talk more freely about the particular concerns that weigh heavily on you. You will also be ‘held,’ in the therapeutic sense, as you identify, explore, and express difficult & conflicting feelings. During the course of counselling you will also gain an understanding of your particular life and relationship patterns and gain greater self-understanding, self-insight, and capacity for self-compassion. Additionally, you will be supported as you find and try out more self-soothing, dreams realising & life-affirming ways of living, being & coping.

As a Counselling Practitioner I am of the belief that each one of us house’ within us an innate intelligence that encourages us to be authors & masters of ourselves. All that is required of us is to learn to let that inner knowing guide us. I recognise that it takes great focus & resolve to trust those inner promptings, and this is one of the reasons this inner healing journey has been likened to the road less travelled. The very definition of the word Courage is to follow heart, so you are already on a very courageous path searching here at BACP for the right kind of therapy for yourself.
