All of us at some time in our life will face difficulties and coping can become increasingly hard. We
may realise that we want to make changes and need support. It is often difficult talking to friends or
family about the things that trouble us most. That's where it can be helpful to talk to a counsellor. A
counsellor is trained to listen and understand your life and experiences without judgement. Working
together in this safe environment, you will have the space to explore and better understand your
thoughts, feelings and behaviours. This will help you to make decisions about the changes that you
want in your life or to enable you to accept and come to terms with those things you cannot change.
Counselling can empower you to overcome your difficulties, to grow and develop and to move
How I work:
I work in an integrative way, using a core approach of Person-Centred Counselling, along with tools
and techniques from other approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness and
Transactional Analysis. I am also a qualified Auricular Acupuncturist and can provide this alongside
counselling if it is felt beneficial.
Fundamentally, I believe that you, as a client, are the best expert in your own life and situation.
Given the right environment, where you will be truly heard and accepted unconditionally – I believe
that you will have the ability to overcome your difficulties and find your own solutions.
