About me and my therapy practice

"The curious paradox is that when I accept myself, just as I am, then I can change" Carl Rogers. 

Sometimes, it may be our biggest challenge- 'to accept ourselves, just as we are'. Sometimes, its difficult to know how one truly feels. In my work as a Person centred experiential counsellor, I strive to provide an environment, where clients feel able to talk through their challenges, focus on their emotions and arrive at their unique solutions, with an aim to understand themselves better.  Challenges are part of life, its when we get stuck within them, with a sense of loss of autonomy, that we could really use some help. My hope is to be able to offer that support within my practice.
