About me and my therapy practice
I have over 40 years experience in Counselling, Psychotherapy and Financial Business sectors working in a variety of wide-ranging environments.
I believe all therapy is personal and has to fit in accordance with each individual’s explicit and implicit needs, which are in continuous development. Therefore, my primary focus is to always work with a client’s interests at the forefront to ensure they receive the maximum benefit. This means I work in a very compassionate, conscientious and respectful manner creating a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment of support where my objective is to empower and release a client’s potential.
The value of my work largely lies in the collaborative quality of the therapeutic relationships I build with clients. For me, it is of paramount importance and an essential part of the therapeutic process. Clients evolving trust in my honesty, ability and character measure my success and I find the experience of witnessing their life changes, thoughts, feelings and behaviour both rewarding and enriching.
I naturally have an open minded, intuitive, down to earth and attentive approach where my adaptable style of therapy is interactive and engaging - bringing warmth, strength, energy, passion and a respectful, accepting presence to my work - but I can also be appropriately challenging.
