about me

my approach

I have a warm, compassionate and non-judgemental approach.

The type of counselling I offer is based on the person centred approach. This means I respect you as an individual and trust that you have the capacity for healing and growth. I work in a way that allows you to explore your own individual choices and decisions at your own pace. Together we can work towards short-term goals and solutions, or take a long-term relational approach.

Person centred therapy

is built on the understanding that all human beings are constantly striving to do the best they can for themselves.  We all instinctively want to be well and whole and we have inside ourselves the ability to grow, despite any difficult experiences we may have had in our lives. 


I am here to help facilitate you in finding a way forward that is right for you.
