Reach Out - Be Supported
I am a reflective and committed Therapeutic Counsellor who puts you the client, at the very heart of my work. I am an experienced, effective practitioner who promotes proven client growth, self-sufficiency and self-awareness, working with both adults and young people.
If you feel that you would like to talk about how you are feeling and how this is affecting you, then counselling can give you this opportunity. Together we can explore your concerns in a safe, confidential environment within a trusting therapeutic relationship - talking brings about change.
With care, compassion, attentive listening and authenticity I can help you to engage in the healing process that talking therapy has to offer in abundance. I understand that it is not easy to talk about problems. I can work with you to support you in making the changes you would like to happen in your life, work alongside you to improve your emotional wellbeing and assist you in meeting your desired goals.
I am here to help and support you.
