A warm welcome from me. I understand if you feel nervous about starting counselling especially if this is your first time. Maybe you’ve tried it before and are looking for something a bit deeper or a more direct approach?
I can help you talk about what troubles you and together we will understand your uniqueness. Good counselling often leads to feelings of more choice and greater freedom within your life.

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 more fuller-functioning you.
Being human is complex; many clients say they have a critical internal voice, suffer with self-doubt, lack confidence, find it hard to talk about their feelings or 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.

My style of counselling is evidence-based and rooted in the Person-centred approach. I create the conditions which enable you to feel safe and trusting within our professional relationship. I offer an open and generous heart, refreshing honesty and a keenness to understand you from your point of view. I will show compassion and unconditional regard to all aspects of you throughout our work. This approach allows you to open to your real self and potential.
We create a working relationship built on trust and mutual respect. There may be tears but also laughter.

If you need support with aspects of your life and would like to talk to a professional counsellor and be understood, then do get in touch and I look forward to working with you.
