I offer a safe and confidential place where you can talk and be heard. Counselling is about you and what might be troubling you, it might be something happening in your world right now or something that has been with you for a while.
You might know exactly what is troubling you or have a general sense of something just not being right.
Sometimes talking to family and friends isn't always possible. I will hear how it is for you, because I'm not involved in your world.
I will give you the time and space to be yourself. I don't believe that people are broken and need fixing but at times we can all feel a long way from where we want to be.
Everybody is different and so our work together will be led by what works best for you. You dictate the pace and decide what you feel able to discuss.
I am a qualified and experienced counsellor. I choose to work in a Person Centred way which means that you decide what you want to share and the pace that we work together, I am not here to judge but to hear what it feels like in your world. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and honour their code of ethics which guides my work.
I am a real person, I will treat you with respect and offer a place where it is ok to be what you need to be. I am warm and approachable and enjoy a quiet sense of humour. I have two gorgeous Labradors who will be safely tucked away during our time together but they may woof a welcome to you when you arrive!
"...you gave me the hope that I could carry on"
"When he died I was really angry, you helped me find a way to grieve"
"Every week you were always the same, you didn’t judge me. Thank you"
"You got me."
"I was scared when I first came for counselling, I’d never had it before and didn’t know what to expect. I don’t like talking about myself. You were so normal, you helped me to feel relaxed and we laughed as much as I cried, slowly I started to feel differently and I can honestly say that I’m starting to like myself now 😊"
