About my approach as a person-centred counsellor

I believe everyone grows naturally towards the best they can be but sometimes events and choices can hamper you. I will help you to build trust and confidence in your real self and your own decision-making process in a warm and safe, non-judgemental environment.


We can explore at your own pace your relationships, areas of your life and thoughts and feelings which you find challenging to help you make choices which will enable you to move through life with a sense of satisfaction and fulfilment.


I can help you to explore self-worth and values, to understand and accept who you are, and reconnect with yourself. I understand how the judgements of others can affect you and recognise you are an individual with your own view of the world.


I have over twenty-four years of experience in a non-counselling role helping people in crisis including depression, mental health issues, suicide, self-harm, domestic violence and sexual abuse.


I hold an Undergraduate Diploma in a Person-Centred Approach in Therapeutic Counselling and am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).

I offer sessions during weekdays and evenings.
Sessions cost £40, couples counselling sessions cost £60
