Personal Statement

I offer a free fifteen-minute introductory session where you can discuss what you would like to explore in counselling and ask any questions. I work with individuals and with couples. The counselling can be short-term or long-term depending on your own individual needs. My approach to counselling is person-centred and is client-directed and underpinned by facilitating an empathic, authentic and healing environment. Couples may want to work through issues and difficulties in their relationship and improve communication. Counselling is a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space in which to explore any issues that may emerge in the process. I also offer breathing techniques/somatic exercises and meditation to reduce stress and anxiety and to enable emotional regulation. I also have an interest in mindfulness.
