My Philosophy to Counselling.

Contact Me

I am a caring and compassionate counsellor, who will meet you at your point of need. I will work with you at your own pace, in order to more hopefully move forward towards the goals you would like to achieve.


You are taking a very brave step when you make the decision to come for counselling and decide to do something proactive towards changing aspects of your life which you can no longer deal with alone. It can often be very helpful to have someone come alongside you who can help you find new perspectives around the issues which are troubling you.


My approach is largely person-centred, which means that I am very much led by you and your desired agenda. It also means that there is more of an emphasis on the counselling relationship we build up together and how this can, often in itself, become a stepping stone towards making positive changes in your life. However, as I have been trained in such a way which allows me to implement various techniques and approaches, I can tailor my approach as appropriate and helpful for you.


Due to the current situation with Covid 19, in order to keep my clients safe, I am carrying out all my counselling sessions by telephone or Zoom. This is likely to continue for the foreseeable future.

To some this might not seem ideal. However it is working surprisingly well. Some clients are preferring this format and are finding it less daunting. From my point of view I have found that it is still possible to build up a therapeutic relationship using these mediums.

I will, as always, aim to do my very best to make you feel at ease and as comfortable as possible.
