Personal Statement

Struggling to make sense of things or finding it difficult to cope?

Counselling can help you come to terms with things, and make real changes in your life, whether your reasons for seeking counselling stem from past traumas or current struggles.

My sense is that when we feel overwhelmed, we often cannot see the solutions that are within our grasp and thus we remain stuck. I also firmly believe that many of life’s problems can be alleviated by sharing them with someone who is trained to listen

I am a big believer in going at a pace that is comfortable for you.  Giant leaps all begin with gentle steps.

I know that coming to Counselling can seem daunting but I like to consider myself to be  a very approachable person.

I am an integrative Counsellor, meaning I combine different approaches in therapy so that it can be tailored to your particular needs.
