I am a qualified counsellor offering a warm and caring confidential counselling service. I provide a safe environment for people to explore challenges or difficulties with the aim of finding solutions to suit the individual.
My theoretical perspective is Person Centred. I recognise and value each person as a unique individual.
I believe that the key in my therapeutic work is simply being there for you with an open heart and mind. Being fully present means meeting you and your life's journey with empathy and compassion, because I know from the experience how powerful it can be to feel really seen and understood.
