Creating a calm, confidential, safe space where you can talk openly without fear of judgment, I will listen carefully to gain an empathetic understanding of you and your situation. Then working together within a relationship based on trust, acceptance and honesty I will support you in your exploration of yourself past, present and future.
I am a trainee integrative counsellor working with Person-Centered and Psychodynamic modalities tailoring my approach to meet your needs. Psychodynamic counselling is a talking therapy that looks at patterns of behaviour established in the past that may help you understand the present. Person-Centered counselling is a talking therapy that is non-directive and seeks to help clients gain autonomy in their own lives. Counseling is a confidential process where you can choose to relate as much or as little as you wish. You may wish to be fully heard within a warm, accepting and non-judgmental space or you may wish to unpack, explore and understand complicated issues. Whatever your unique need is I hope to build a trusting relationship with you so you feel free to explore with ease.
My life experience has been varied but with decades working in a media-related industry, I understand the pressures of the modern workplace on all aspects of life including on families and relationships.
