About

If you are at a point in life where you feel stuck or at a point of crisis, and it's preventing your ability to enjoy things as you have normally, you may be needing some extra help to find a way forward. Or if one or more of your relationships with others is becoming difficult, and you don't know why, then this can indicate you are struggling. If your inner world is feeling desperate or muddled and too difficult to manage alone, then counselling can be a positive step in trying to change that. To sit and explore your story and feelings with someone can be powerful in unblocking difficult feelings and to understand what you need.
I provide a warm, safe and non-judgemental space for you to be heard and understood. I work in a client-centred way; enabling you to talk about what is most important. I will tailor my approach, integrating other helping tools into the work, depending on your needs and aims in therapy and how you prefer to work.
I place great importance on our relationship, and will work with it to help you understand more about yourself and what you need to improve life on the outside. I understand how starting therapy can naturally feel daunting, which is why I will follow your lead and take care to work at a pace that suits you.
