Special interest areas

I have a special interest in working with clients who are neurodivergent - Including but not limited to - ADHD, Dyslexia, and Autism. I also have experience working with clients with a range of long term neurological illness and long term health conditions. The human brain is the most complex structure in the universe, and the most important part of who we are. It runs our whole world, moves our body and makes our decisions. .

Personal Statement

I am a qualified person centred experiential therapist. Person centred therapy is based upon the underlying belief that every person has both the ability and the desire to reach their potential through personal growth and change. This natural inclination is called the self-actualizing tendency. The ability to self-actualize derives from a person’s capacity for self-understanding and for changing their own self-concepts, as well as attitudes and behaviours. The interactions between the therapist and client facilitate this change. I offer a confidential non- judgemental environment in which you can explore whatever it is you may be feeling or experiencing, in your own time and at your own pace. The way I work is non-directive, allowing clients to explore their concerns in an environment where you feel safe, supported and accepted. Through this process, people can enhance their self awareness, to feel more self-accepting and become more empowered in their lives.
