About me and my therapy practice

I offer a warm, friendly and personal counselling service. My work is rooted in a humanistic, person-centred philosophy which integrates a range of approaches such as solution-focused, psychodynamic and existential therapies. I believe that at times of crisis or difficulty there is value to being ‘listened’ to, feeling ‘understood’ and being accepted without being criticized or judged. I respect the uniqueness of ‘self’ and impact of transitional processes that can come into life and present a mix of emotions particularly, anger, despair, sadness and guilt. I have worked with various voluntary and statutory agencies throughout my career in health/social care. I have experienced working in a palliative/end of life care hospice environment and offering pre and post bereavent support to carer's and families. I have also worked with young people/families who have complex health and disabilities and offered support with family issues and concerns; relationship break-down, anxiety and depression. I understand that change can be difficult and adjusting to new situations can be challenging. As a counsellor, I can faciliate a safe and confidential service that can support you to explore your understanding of your experiences. This will hopefully build on your capacity to develop coping mechanisms that can support change and coming to terms with new situations.
