As a qualified and experienced counsellor I work to build a trusting relationship that values individuality and supports my clients’ own abilities to make choices that are right for them. Working together in this way, clients often deepen their understanding which can be self-enriching and may enhance relationships with others.
I offer a calm, confidential environment where you have the freedom to express your thoughts, feelings and emotions. You can be assured I will receive you with empathic understanding and without judgement. This experience can be immensely reassuring and often gives a different perspective that can lead to greater life fulfilment.
Wherever you are in your journey, counselling can help strengthen your inner resources and confidence, helping you to feel more positive.
I am an integrative counsellor with a humanistic background, drawing on different approaches to best meet your individual need. I offer a caring therapeutic relationship where you can experience genuineness, acceptance and empathy. The foundation of our work is valuing you as your own expert and within this trusting relationship I support your autonomy so you can explore your choices and experience growth.
I am experienced in supporting clients through a wide range of difficulties and I am a registered adoption support counsellor. Whatever your reasons for seeking support at this time, you can be assured of a warm and professional response.
