2 Years Experience

Life can be so hard at times, yet most of us struggle on, carrying our pain, fear and unmet needs in silence. Perhaps you have lost a loved one or a job, or are losing your health or youth?

Whatever is going on for you, counselling can help you with your life - exploring your concerns in an accepting environment can be a great relief, as you share the difficulties, hopes and fears that may have been weighing you down.

Counselling can help you change, as you learn to view yourself as the most important judge of you, your life and your role in this world. And this change may help you move towards a better relationship with others.

What would it be like to create time in your life where you have the undivided attention of somebody who is 100% on your side? Whatever has happened in your life, we can explore what it means to you in a compassionate, accepting online space.

Counselling can feel scary and some people find that they feel more at ease with online counselling. You may feel less self-conscious with online counselling, and more comfortable in your own environment. As I listen to you with great care, and a deep acceptance for your right to feel the way that you do, change and healing can happen. Whether you choose counselling by video, audio, live chat or email, beginning counselling can be an act of great self-care.

I am a BACP registered counsellor with a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am also a Certified Cyber Therapist with the Online Therapy Institute and offer person-centred video counselling.

I treat you as a unique person, avoiding diagnosis or labels. Your view of the world equally important to that of anybody else. Trusting that every person has the capacity to grow in a way which makes sense to them and to their situation.

Believing that you are the expert in your world. Listening to you with great care and a deep acceptance for your right to feel the way that you do.

Trying to earn your trust by being myself in our relationship to help you to feel safe to be yourself with me.

Working at your pace. Comfortable with the expression of deep emotion and with silence.

Believing that within both there can be change and healing.

I try to provide the conditions for growth, free from desire as to what that should look like, as I trust your innate potential for making your own meanings in your life, in your world.

Choosing to begin counselling can feel scary, but booking may also be seen as investing in you and your one precious life; with the potential for healing and positive change, as we build a therapeutic relationship together.

Thank you for visiting my profile.
