My aim is to provide a safe, open and compassionate space.

The idea of therapy is for you to be able to express yourself and feel no judgement as we work through the issues that bring you to counselling.

Together we will look at your concerns, thoughts and feelings. We will look at what brings you to counselling and how you think you can resolve your issues.

I will incorporate techniques from other therapies to support you and this can be done in my office, outside or online … whichever is best for you.
