About me and my therapy practice

I am trained professional person-centered therapist. We will work together to help find your own solutions, this could be making effective changes in your life or finding ways of coping with problems.  In addition I also offer solution-focussed therapy and CBT psycho-educational techniques where appropriate or helpful to a client.  I find this blend works well with clients and offers a therapeutic and practical toolkit to wellness.

Practice description

Each client will be treated with dignity and respect.  As a professional therapist I will be impartial, understanding and listen to you without judgement.  I shall help you explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, so you are able to develop a better understanding of yourself.

Most importantly in my practice the uniqueness of the person is valued and upheld.

If helpful and supportive to the client I will offer solution focussed therapy and CBT techniques in an unobtrusive way.
