About me and my therapy practice

As a person-centred therapist, I firmly believe that each of us holds the answers to our own issues within. My role here is to help you recognise these and support you in working through them. I will aim to create a trusting counselling relationship throughout our sessions, where you can feel able to express your feelings in an empathic and accepting environment. Through this collaboration, our aim would be for you to gain a deeper understanding of yourself, in turn facilitating the change you are aspiring to achieve.

Practice description

Over the years, I have worked in various settings, including Counselling Agencies, Charities, Employee Assistance Programme and in High Schools. My work has covered a diverse set of peoples issues, ranging from trauma, bereavement and addiction, to relationship issues or any other aspects of life which may have become a burden. I recognise that each person who attends counselling has a unique set of circumstances and experiences and that nobody will fit neatly into any one category. My aim is to work together with you to establish a counselling relationship in which you feel safe and trusting enough to explore and work through the issues that are important to you. 

My first session

Our initial session will give you the opportunity to assess if you feel comfortable working with me. Furthermore, we can discuss what has brought you to counselling, and how you would like to proceed. 

Following on from the first session, the intention is to meet weekly, at the same time and on the same day. These sessions are in person, at a time that suits you.
