I am a fully qualified ‘person-centred’ counsellor, which means we work at your pace and with what is comfortable. For specific unhelpful thinking patterns, I can offer CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) which is more of an analytical approach.
I am a warm and empathic person. I believe that trust and building a good relationship will allow you to explore your feelings, past and present, in a safe and caring environment.
I will not judge you nor provide solutions – just offer you a confidential space to untangle your thoughts and feelings and help you to look at options to make any changes.
All of us have periods of emotional difficulty during our lives and sometimes we find that it is hard to understand and move forward. If you are experiencing this, then sharing can be very beneficial and together we can navigate those overwhelming feelings and situations that can make you feel stuck.
How I work
I work as an integrative counsellor, which means that I am trained in different counselling models.
Every person is unique, so it is important that I can establish a way of working that is suitable for each individual.
Our first session together is an assessment, in order for you and I to ensure we feel comfortable together and to determine what your needs are and what type of support you require.
Counselling is a collaborative process, so it is important that we find a way of moving forward which feels right for you.
You can expect to enter a safe and inviting environment, where you can relax and have space and time to express your concerns.
Whatever you’re struggling with, counselling is here to help you make sense of what you’re going through, to support you and help bring you to a fresh and brighter outlook on life.
I offer face-to-face, online or telephone counselling. I do not offer a set number of sessions as everyone is unique and we will work at a different pace.
All sessions are fully confidential in line with industry standards.
