About me and my therapy practice

I am a person centred counsellor. I use an integrative, humanistic approach, taking my lead from the person I am with at all times. If you are feeling overwhelmed or confused by current or past life experiences, I can offer a gentle listening ear to help you understand what is happening for you. Being listened to and accepted is hugely important to our personal wellbeing and as such, I promise to offer a safe, respectful, supportive and non judgemental counselling environment. You may like to know that I am able to offer a range of creative and mindful techniques within my practice and how we work together will depend entirely on your wishes and needs.  I believe that you have the solutions within you for any challenges you are experiencing and that through working together,  you will find your way forwards.  You may feel a little nervous about counselling and taking that first step may be a bit scary for you. The first step is to contact me and we can talk about what sort of help you think you might need and I can explain how I might be able to help.
