About me and my therapy practice

I work with adult men, women and identifications in between. No matter your background, our similarities and differences, I aim to listen and understand you and create the conditions for you to move toward a fuller functioning you.

Being human is complex; many clients say they have a critical internal voice, suffer with self-doubt, lack of confidence, find it hard to talk about their feelings, seem unable to make a decision or change the way they do things.

As a counsellor I am familiar with these ways of being and can help you understand where they come from. The counselling process allows you to open up to the real you and your potential.

Practice description

My counselling style is evidence-based and founded in Person-centred Theory and I’m a big fan. I offer compassion and unconditional regard to all aspects of you throughout the work.

I might help you make decisions but won’t impose my beliefs or opinions onto you. If I don’t understand, I will ask and we’ll uncover your complexities together.

I endeavour to bring my kind honesty and authentic self to the work, along with professional boundaries, allowing you to feel safe. We create a working relationship built on trust and mutual respect. There may be tears but also laughter.

My first session

You can contact me using the link on this page. Please provide your email address with a short enquiry message, and your phone number, if you are able.

I’ll respond by email and should be able to offer a free phone consultation, usually around 20 minutes.

This helps me understand what you need, is for you to ask any questions and will help us both decide the way forward.

If you decide to book in for Counselling, I will send a client agreement.
