About me and my therapy practice

I work in a way that is client-centred and solution focused that best suit the needs of an individual client. I use active listening  to ensure clients express their thoughts, feelings, experiences and emotions in a relaxed, non-judgemental, empathic, confidential and safe space. The way I work allows me to provide the opportunity to explore and open individual clients eyes more fully to their own world.

 I work in a way that support client to gain a better and deeper understanding of issues that might be underlying any struggles or difficulties. I work passionately to enhance the coping capacities of individuals and groups through providing evidence based support to enable them set and achieve their goals, manifest their potentials, and make any changes they may wish to make in their lives and function more effectively.

Practice description

You may seek the support of a counsellor for several reasons so I work with clients to explore how they can benefit from an engaging counselling and therapeutic session. I understand that life can be quite challenging, or sometimes an individual’s past experiences may cause some difficulty. These may lead to struggles, distress, and not functioning effectively in one’s daily life. I work with individual clients who this may resonate with their personal situation through listening, talking, and providing support in a confidential, non-judgemental, supportive and safe environment.

I understand contacting me as a counsellor can be a courageous first step towards creating the changes in your life that are right for you. I am that person that you can work with and comfortably talk to and share your personal thoughts, feelings, emotions or experiences that are really important to you.

My first session

I am happy to offer a no-obligation initial telephone consultation to give clients an opportunity to outline their reason for seeking support, and to decide whether they would like to work with me. From there we book a first counselling session. During the first session some of the time will be spent discussing and agreeing our way of working together. Thereafter, session time is entirely for clients to focus on what they would like to talk about and I will support in exploring whatever issues are brought to the sessions.
