Thank you for visiting my BUPA Finder profile today. As a counsellor, I work alongside clients to help them address a wide range of issues, including and not exclusively, those listed below. My counselling approach is person centred, working with what the client brings in a safe, confidential and non judgmental environment. I offer telephone and online sessions. I work in a short term and solution focussed way with my clients as well as offering longer term therapeutic support.
Counselling is an opportunity to be heard and not judged thus helping you explore your issues and make the positive changes you want to. This empowers you to identify the choices available and to make your own decisions.
