Person-Centred

My core focus as a counsellor is to provide you with person-centred support, so what I offer is a private space for your voice to be heard and a relationship in which you feel supported and understood.

During counselling I won’t set an agenda, but I will work hard to listen and support your autonomy with warmth and understanding

The empathic approach takes into account your individual circumstances and is based on the belief (or credence!) that connection is a very human need, in order to withstand life’s challenges.

Perhaps you feel nobody understands what you are going through at the moment?

In my practice, I have worked with people suffering anxiety, depression, loss, stress, burnout, low self-esteem and relational challenges. Counselling provides a place for you to talk with someone who will listen carefully to understand what you are experiencing. It may be that you’re not really sure what’s wrong and that’s ok. In fact, it’s a common starting point. Counselling is a process that can lead to understanding and clarity and you have someone to sit beside you whilst you take the journey.
