Sometimes life’s demands can become overwhelming and we need time and space to work them out.
Counselling can facilitate your development and enable you to heal through a process of self -reflection.
In this safe space, I can provide the environment in which you can explore what is troubling you, without the fear of judgement, or the intrusion of someone else’s opinions.
I am a qualified counsellor, psychotherapist (MBACP & MNCS Accredited) and Supervisor who has experience of supporting clients through a wide variety of issues. I also offer Relationship and Couple Counselling. I believe the quality of the therapeutic relationship is the context in which healing and growth can - and will - take place. I will not claim to be an expert in your life, or offer advice. My aim is for you to be more fully yourself, with the freedom to grow and the ability to change.
As a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and an accredited member of the National Counselling Society (NCS), I am bound by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in counselling and psychotherapy, and am subject to their Professional Conduct Procedures.
My work is 'person-centred' which means you and your unique issues and needs are my central concerns. The benefits of counselling can include increased confidence and self-esteem, an ability to cope better, clarification of confused thoughts and feelings, personal insight and the potential to move forward and grow. Because Your Life Matters.
