About me and my therapy practice

I have always had a deep calling to be in relationship with others and to understand the emotional connectivity that helps us to thrive and grow as human being which is why I trained as a Person Centred Counsellor. Counselling is different from other relationships in that its primary objective is to offer support in a one way exchange to someone looking to understand themselves more clearly or work through areas such as anxiety, bereavement, relationship issues to name but a few. I believe counselling is effective precisely because we are strangers and you can be seen and understood for who you are with compassion understanding and lack of judgement.

I have a particular interest in Emotional Focused Couples therapy. In my couples work my hope is to help you identify what the problem areas might be in your relationship and unlock what isn't being heard or felt so that you can communicate more clearly with one another. I would like to support you both to access the unspoken emotions within your selves that are often covered up by anger or blame, so that you both can receive what you need to restore the bonds that you once had.
