About me and my therapy practice

As human beings our lives cannot be untouched by suffering.

sometimes the suffering can feel so great that we begin to have difficulty living our everyday lives, and we may find all tasks a struggle.

Counselling involves being able to share difficult issues, thoughts and feelings in a safe, secure environment. It is not always easy to talk to those we love as we often don't want to hurt them, and do not want them to think badly of us, so working with a non judgemental, empathic counsellor can enable a person to explore issues openly.

I have worked in private practice for over 12 years and have built up a wealth of knowledge and experience, both through my client work and extra study. I find all human beings extraordinary and believe we all have the resources deep within ourselves to live fulfilled and contended lives. Through the medium of a deep therapeutic relationship we will work together to facilitate a reconnection with the self.

The Counselling/therapy I offer helps a person to connect to their strengths, values and self-regard, to move away from suffering and step into a space of inner resourcefulness and contentment.

I abide by the BACP code of ethics and collectively.
