Life can be difficult. It throws up challenges, changes and conflicts. These can be within ourselves, or in our relationships and work, or from living in a worrying world. Counsellors work together with people who are faced with troubles, burdens and questions and seek to help them find a better place to be. Whatever the source of the problem I believe that counselling has the potential to help. People can talk to someone who will not judge them but listen to them carefully and supportively. Counsellors can also go a little deeper and use a range of techniques which may be of help.
I have sought to be that helpful and supportive person all my life, working as a teacher and counsellor in school, church, private and local authority settings. I have a Diploma in Pastoral Counselling and work in an integrative fashion which means I employ a variety of well respected, tested and tried counselling techniques as appropriate.
These include Person-centred, Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural, Existential and Solution Focussed Therapies. Having said that, the relationship between counsellor and client is the most important thing and I seek to provide a safe and comfortable setting where we can work together in a trusting, teamworking relationship.

The most important ingredient in therapy is a warm, understanding and trustworthy relationship. I give my clients ample time to talk and I listen carefully to them. With these features as a foundation, we can use some tested and tried therapeutic techniques to seek to bring some relief and some resolutions.
