I believe in a non-directive approach to counselling, based on my firm belief that you as a client, are the best expert on your own life and situation. During counselling, I will aim to hear you completely and carefully and with acceptance. I value diversity, and will seek to respect your values, choices and culture. I seek to provide a safe and facilitative therapeutic relationship, within which you feel unconditionally accepted and deeply understood. My own experience as both a client and a therapist has shown me that when people are met in this way, they will find within them the ability to move through difficulty and find their own way forward. I will endeavor to be alongside you whatever you wish to explore.
Areas of interest
As a person-centred counsellor I prefer to see people in an holistic way, rather than by defining them by the issues that they may bring to counselling. Nevertheless I realise that it is reassuring for potential clients to be aware of what previous clients have brought to their sessions. These have included,
Self harm, Suicidal feelings, Addiction, Domestic Violence, Childhood Abuse and Neglect, Bereavement, Depression, Anxiety, Self-esteem, Body-image, Mental health issues, Sexual issues, Sexual violence and abuse, Family issues, Relationships, Parenting issues, Issues associated with life transitions and/or aging.
I have extensive experience in working with people who have experienced sexual violence and abuse.
