We all experience difficult periods in our life, and my intention is to help you through this time. By listening to you with understanding and acceptance, my intention is that we may work together collaboratively to make the changes you desire. Many people find taking that first step, in reaching out for help, quite daunting. I fully recognise how difficult it can be, especially if you've never had any form of counselling or psychotherapy before. I particularly welcome newcomers to counselling and psychotherapy in my practice.
My approach is to offer clients a safe, non-judgemental space to explore feelings and issues which may be troubling. Sometimes I may offer an exercise as a way to look at something in a more creative way. I would not tell you what to do, but support you on your journey. I adapt my way of working to suit your individual needs.
I am an experienced person centred practitioner, with many additional trainings, such as emotion focused therapy. I believe that the therapeutic alliance, or our connection, is important in supporting a good outcome. My private practise is run from home in a beautiful, relaxing, quiet and comfortable environment. It is accessible by bus, and has off-street parking if travelling by car. I would be happy to speak to you if you would like further information, or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
