I value individual differences, honesty, integrity, finding your own path, standing out from the crowd, connection and relationship. I strongly believe people can be empowered to find their own answers. I know that i am not a fixer and i don’t have all the answers, although I might have a suggestion or two. I know that I am ok to sit with people in chaos. I can tolerate stuckness and I am not afraid to be afraid, nor walk into a dark place.
My aim as a therapist is to create a space where you can explore your difficulties, develop an understanding of where and how these difficulties arise to enable you to find ways to make improvements. This can involve thinking about how you view yourself, your relationship with others and how to make positive changes to move forward. I practice on a one to one basis offering you a safe non-judgmental and supportive environment. I provide the opportunity for you to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviour to identify core issues which may be causing you stress.
I am trained in Integrative Psychotherapy and work with clear ethical boundaries. I am registered with both British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and UK Council and Psychotherapy (UKCP). I work with individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life, realize your true self and live it more fully.
If you decide to have counselling, the first step would be to arrange and appointment by telephone or email. This initial meeting is very important, so you can discuss your concerns, and what you would like from therapy.
