Hi and welcome, I offer online counselling and when possible we can meet in person. A little about me. I began my therapeutic journey as a client. I was able to explore my difficulties and make sense of them whist receiving compassion and understanding from my therapist. This experience enabled me to move forward and inspired me to offer that safe non judgemental support to others.
The aim of my Counselling practice is to Mindfully, support your knowledge of causes of concerns in a safe space. so you can discover what to change, accept and move forward.
When dialogue becomes painful and difficult we can explore other creative styles that may suit you. I have a strong ethos with supporting clients to explore and set their own inner boundary, therefore allowing and empowering you to find your own inner therapist.
