My belief is that a relationship based on authentic communication, respect, and empathy can facilitate the possibility for personal growth. I aim to offer such a relationship in my work with clients. It is important that you feel comfortable in your choice of counsellor as this is the foundation for building that relationship. I work using an integrative model
this means that I draw on multiple theoretical approaches whilst holding the relationship at the centre of all that I do.
I offer a free 20-minute consultation which gives you the chance to ask any questions and provides you an opportunity to see if I am the right counsellor for you.
If you are a trainee counsellor and looking for a therapist, I offer discounted rates to support you through your development.
My work at a local hospice supporting bereaved relatives, carers and patients has shown me that even in the most difficult of times human connection is essential. I have worked with clients to find self-acceptance in order to facilitate a change in their lives. I support clients in building a sense of self-worth and in finding their authentic self.
As a member of the BACP I adhere to the ethical guidelines that they outline. I attend regular supervision sessions where I gain guidance and support in my work from a registered supervisor. I am committed to continual profession development through attending training workshops, talks and ensuring that I am aware of current research.
