Personal Statement

As my core approach is Person Centred it means it is you, the client, who decides what you would like us to look at and at what pace. Working together in this way will enable you to unlock your own solutions and discover what you would like to do. An increase in self awareness leads to the identification of new perspectives and options, providing greater clarity. When we have the space to find our own answers, they have more meaning to us and are more effective and enduring. Together we can explore your feelings, thoughts, anxieties, memories or anything else you choose to bring. I will offer you a safe, confidential space where you can be yourself. You can expect to be listened to, understood and respected - free from interruption, judgment or assumption. Effective counselling is very much dependant on the strength, trust and connection within each unique therapeutic relationship. Therefore I suggest we arrange a free 15 minute online call to help us to decide whether I am the right counsellor for you.
