I am a Person Centred counsellor offering 1-2-1 confidential counselling sessions. I have worked with a wide range of concerns with my clients, ranging from domestic violence, eating disorders, anxiety, depression, loneliness, relationship issues, self esteem, family issues, trauma, abuse.
I have a non judgemental therapy style that is client led. I believe that everyone needs support at some time and I treat everyone with respect and acceptance.
I understand that you may be nervous, it takes courage to seek counselling and even more courage to make the initial contact with a potential counsellor. Your reasons for seeking counselling may already be causing you some distress, I understand this and will do everything that I can to make you feel at ease.
I am unable to offer advice and I will never dictate what you should do or how you should deal with a situation, that is not what I am here for. I am here to listen to you and provide you with an unbiased ear. I aim to provide you with an environment where you feel safe and comfortable enough to be able to explore your thoughts and feelings. At all times, your counselling is led by you.
I look forward to hearing from you.
