‘We cannot change, we cannot move away from what we are, until we thoroughly accept what we are. Then change seems to come about, almost unnoticed.’ Carl Rogers
Person-Centred Therapeutic Counselling for adolescents, adults and couples.
There is only ever one true expert on your life, and that is you! But sometimes you need someone alongside you to help navigate through difficult emotions, thoughts, behaviours, and how you cope with these. I can provide you with an understanding and supportive space, allowing you to explore these emotions, thoughts, and behaviours, at your pace and, most importantly, led by you.
My modality (the technique or school I have studied in the most depth and that I am trained to use) is “Person-Centred” therapy and at the heart of my practice is the importance of the therapeutic relationship – between me and you.
If you are reading this, you have already taken the first brave step towards the process of therapeutic counselling. I remember clearly how daunting this was and the courage it takes to acknowledge that sometimes at certain points in life, we need to reach out for help beyond our family and our friendships.
You may be feeling low, and you may also be struggling with life, or you may have identified a pattern in a relationship that you are not comfortable with. You may also simply want the opportunity to get to know yourself better. Through the therapeutic process and together, we will explore the issues you are experiencing and that you wish to share

Step By Step…
Psychotherapy is ‘talking’ therapy and is, at its core, a collaboration between counsellor and client towards the client achieving greater fulfilment and contentment in life. I like to use the staircase metaphor. It can be daunting or even overwhelming to think about the end of the process or the top of the stairway, but it is manageable and productive to know that only the next step need be focused on and is always achievable. Of course, stairs can be climbed as well as descended, so too can the therapeutic process make progress and suffer setbacks. The first step in the therapeutic journey is the first step on the stairway to better fulfilment and contentment.
