About

There can be times in our lives when we feel overwhelmed or distressed and need some help and support.

What I can offer you

I offer a safe, confidential space where I provide a warm, friendly, and neutral environment. In that space we can work through together, building a trusting relationship to address the issues that brought you to counselling. By being alongside you and allowing you to talk and go at your own pace, I can help you to explore and understand your feelings.

I believe as a Person-Centred Counsellor, that each of us has the ability to heal, grow and become more self-assured.

I will not judge or decide what is best for you; my belief is that you are the expert on yourself. By exploring your feelings and life experiences, you will be able to gain insight and understanding, enabling you to heal and decide what is right for you.

 

In order to help you achieve this, my aim will be to put these conditions in place.
 

  • Empathy ; to understand your viewpoint by walking alongside you.

  • Unconditional positive regard; be accepting and being non-judgemental of you.

  • Congruent; to be honest and genuine how I experience you.
