Above all, I understand how important it is for you to be heard and not judged. I offer a safe space to talk in complete confidence, and with respect. Counselling enables us to express our thoughts and feelings in order to make positive changes. Peace of mind may seem so distant to you right now, it need not be. The ability to change is within you, I can help you to make those changes. I am concerned with what has happened to you, and not exclusively what is perceived to be wrong with you.
My counselling experience is wide and varied, I work with addiction, stress, extreme low mood – often described as depression, anxiousness and bereavement. I have worked extensively with young people and staff within the education system. The treatment of trauma and the effects of physical and psychological abuse are of special concern to me.
My approach is based upon the principles of humanistic practices. This approach offers you the opportunity to explore your problems safely and confidentially, without fear of judgment and in complete confidence. As a humanistic counsellor your wellbeing is my prime concern, the direction and pace of your progress is determined by you.
