Client Work

I offer long term therapy for individuals on a weekly basis.

As a person-centured Counsellor I seek to engage my clients in a co-created and supportive therapeutic relationship where self exploration, increased self-awareness and deeper connection to one‘s resources and true self.

I understand entering a counselling relationship can bring up difficult and painful feelings I believe ‘the therapeutic relationship is the therapy’, this can be life changing and enhancing to one’s process.


My Approach

My approach holds you, the client, at the centre of the work. I believe only you truly know what goes on for you and where you want to be. You hold the key and experiences to your personal growth.

I would work towards achieving this by providing a safe space to really listening to you through your frame of reference as well as extending acceptance, unconditional positive regard and honesty. All three conditions Carl Roger’s believed to be necessary conditions for growth. 

My goal is to facilitate and provide a clinical relationship for your personal development.
