About me and my therapy practice
Welcome to my profile page.
The decision to come to counselling can be a difficult and important step for you. Journeying through past experiences and present feelings or fears for the future can be painful, insightful and enlightening all at the same time. I am here to listen and help you reflect and explore how and why you relate to your world the way you do, working together to help you focus and gain clarity on what’s important.
I aim to support you in moving forward in your life with new understanding. This new understanding can lead to a richer life experience and help you tap into your full potential. Drawing on my past background in the arts, I sometimes use creative therapies, etc,. art therapy, reflective journal writing, which can sometimes help clients make sense of their feelings.
Being a creative person I am naturally an integrative counsellor, meaning I have studied a variety of different theories and models from the humanistic orientation and adapt my style to best suit my clients needs. I aim to provide an empathic, warm and confidential space for you to feel comfortable and at ease.
