About me and my therapy practice
I am a BACP accredited counsellor experienced in working with young people from 11 years old, adults, older adults and couples.
You are the most important person in your life and looking after your well-being could be the most important thing you do today. I can help you with many of life's problems, giving you a safe and confidential space to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. I don't give advice or make suggestions about what I think you should do because I believe in your ability to come to your own solutions, given the right environment and conditions to do so.
Being person-centred means the therapy is focused on you; the client, and your needs and concerns. I believe you are the only person who knows what feels right or wrong and you are the only expert on your individual concerns and I will work with you to help you to move forward in life and achieve your goals. I do this by seeing your world through your eyes and understanding what it is like to be you living your life. I will actively listen to your story and make no judgements about it but accept you for who you are and respect the changes you want to make.
Person-centred therapy can help to make powerful and life long changes in you and how you see yourself and your relationships.
I have over thirty years experience of supporting people and their families through my work in charities, private practice and large organisations. I also offer EAP (Employee Assistance Programme) work and I work closely with a charity supporting child victims of crime. I'm also a school counsellor at a secondary school and a lecturer of counselling at Bedford college.
