About me and my therapy practice

My work is grounded in the person-centred approach with an emphasis on mindfulness, and my aim is to make therapy a safe and inviting space to explore whatever is troubling you.

The decision to start therapy can be a difficult first step towards healing, and finding the right therapist is crucial. Research shows that the relationship between counsellor and client is one of the main factors in successful therapy. We are often wounded in relationship, whether as children or as adults, and I believe it is in relationship that we can also be healed.

My core training is person-centred therapy, an approach pioneered by Carl Rogers in the 1950s and 1960s as an alternative to traditional psychotherapy. Person-centred therapy moves away from the idea of the therapist as an expert who can fix you, trusting instead that you have the innate capacity to fulfil your own potential, given the right conditions. A strong and caring therapeutic relationship, based in genuine acceptance and empathic understanding, forms the foundation of person-centred therapy.

I am passionate about the approach that I use, and I love the challenge of my work with clients. I choose to work in a person-centred way because it is a deeply respectful and effective approach to therapy.

My personal pronouns are he/him.
