Special interest areas
With years of experience and providing support to individuals and groups from all walks of life I can offer a range of therapeutic approaches. Person-centred Counselling and CBT I believe suit clients entering counselling through individual sessions, Couples therapy and Family/Group therapy particularly online and building a therapeutic alliance remotely. .
I create a safe environment for clients to express themselves freely and heal at a pace that suits them. I truly believe being an expert in one sees me being trustworthy for another. I have an innate ability to put people at ease through my acceptance,empathy and integrity. Real human connections form with the therapeutic relationship. I provide a confidential, ethical and non-judgemental practice. I bring a richness to the therapeutic relationship, as I am able to sit alongside clients while they develop a greater sense of self, realise their true potential and travel a little further, a little lighter through their life.
