Personal Statement

I support people with a wide range of difficulties whilst at the same time being aware of the uniqueness of a persons experience. I value and encourage autonomy, agency and offer a thoughtful counselling approach which avoids an homogenised response to an individuals distress. An important element of counselling is that we feel comfortable working together and that the therapeutic relationship is a good fit, a fit which suits your needs, expectations and my counselling style. What you can expect: An intuitive, intelligent and creative approach guided by the humanistic field of counselling theory and practice. Humanism tends to focus on a persons experiences of themselves and the self in relation to others. The counselling process focusses on the growth of an individual's intellectual, emotional and spiritual wellbeing whilst developing a deeper understanding through insight and awareness.
