About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I am a warm and compassionate counsellor, who has a real enthusiasm for helping and supporting individuals work through their emotional issues and personal struggles, to improve their well-being and make positive changes in their lives. 

Struggling day to day with emotional issues can leave us feeling overwhelmed, low, stuck, anxious and alone. Counselling is a safe, calm and confidential space for you to talk freely about your thoughts, feelings and personal issues, where you will be listened to without being judged. I can work alongside you to explore your difficulties and issues at your own safe pace, help you gain a better understanding and encourage you to develop new ways of coping, so that you are more independent and resourceful.

My counselling approach is person-centred, humanistic, which is non-directive and non-judgemental. I believe every person has the capacity to grow towards fulfilling their true potential, and that they are the real experts on their own lives.  I aim to build an equal and trusting relationship with you, so that you are empowered to make your own choices and decisions.

With greater self-awareness, self-trust and self-confidence, you will be able to make positive steps to a more satisfying and meaningful life.

I offer one-to-one short and long-term counselling sessions in an appropriate counselling room near Leicester with on-site parking and road parking nearby.  I also offer home visits to individuals who have mobility issues, which offers flexibility and choice.

Please contact me to book a free 30 minute telephone consultation without obligation.

First counselling session fee is £20, an opportunity for you to see if you feel comfortable to work with me as your counsellor. Counselling sessions thereafter are £40 per session.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
