About me and my therapy practice

There are times in life when we need space to understand what is happening for us and what we need. Each of us are individual and therefore our life experiences are personal to us. Counselling relationships I offer are grounded in trust, honesty and respect. I offer a space where understanding and acceptance is at the centre of our counselling relationship.

I am a Person centred counsellor and work with clients over 16 experiencing: low mood, depression, anxiety, stress, work related issues, relationship issues and living through bereavement. I also work with clients who have recently received a diagnosis and have experience of working alongside people living with sight loss. Most importantly I work with you as a person.

I offer counselling over the telephone. Working over the telephone can have many advantages for you as a client:

You can access counselling from wherever you might be based (providing the space is private and feels safe for you).

You can access counselling from a place where you feel safe, comfortable and secure

You do not need to worry about traveling to a specific place or being able to find a location

Not needing to travel can mean you have greater flexibility to participate in counselling because you do not need to allow time for travel to and from appointments.

It might be you feel unsure about working over the telephone, you might not have attended counselling in the past or you have previously attended counselling and want to chat about how we would work together. I offer a free 30-minute appointment where you can ask any questions and explore any concerns you might have. It is important to me that each client feels safe and respected in our relationship in order to allow our work together to take place.
