I am what is called an ‘integrative counsellor’. What this means is that I have trained in several therapeutic approaches so I can meet each individual clients needs. I understand how hard it can be to make that first step in asking for help. I will endeavour to create a safe and welcoming environment. I firmly believe you have the answers within yourself, its just sometimes we don’t get the time or space to figure them out, and sometimes we need someone who is on the outside looking in with a bit of perspective, knowledge or experience to just helping you join up the dots and find your own solutions or conclusions.
