About me and my therapy practice

I believe that with safety, openness and trust, we can bring about meaningful change in our lives. Helping you to experience these conditions and affect change is the primary aim of my work. I firmly believe in the capacity of individuals to recover and flourish from the difficulties that life brings.  

Practice description

Our work is based around the relationship that we develop together. During our sessions I hope that you feel that you can be open, that you feel trust and feel cared for.  Sessions typically involve expressing and working through difficult, stuck feelings, thoughts and behaviours, those that impact your quality of living. Together, we would explore and grow new patterns, new ways of being, new ways of coping and seeing life, feeling more alive and more vibrant.

My first session

Beginning counselling can feel daunting and scary as well as exciting and hopeful. Taking those first steps can be hard, I understand that, but asking for help can also be a turning point. Counselling is a very personal experience, you might want support, to share painful experiences, to feel understood, to stop unwanted thoughts and feelings, and more. My first aim as a counsellor is to help you to feel comfortable and to allow you to express whatever it is that you need to express.
