I take a person-centred approach to counselling, as I believe that you have the resources within yourself to grow and change. I provide a safe and confidential space for you to reflect and explore your world, without judgement or being told what to do. Instead, I will support you in your exploration so that you may find your own meaning and a way forward that is right for you. Person-centred counselling is an empowering experience of personal discovery, which provides the tools needed for continued growth long after therapy has ended.
I have a particular interest in working with loss, be that through bereavement, loss of health, of youth, of a job or a relationship. Through my work at a local hospice, clients’ individual and unique experience of bereavement and loss has included the exploration of issues such as abusive or controlling relationships, childhood related issues, addiction, gender and sexuality issues, family dynamics, stress, anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts and more.
Whatever your reason for seeking counselling, you will be valued, accepted, and respected in the choices you make, regardless of your race, ethnicity, faith, disability, gender or sexuality.
"The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change."
— Carl Rogers
