Holistic Counselling Professional
We have all experienced life's ups and down's, personal crises and traumas, relationship issues and losses and we all cope with them differently. Especially as we are currently living in a very stressful and uncertain time. Sometimes we need a bit of extra support, someone to voice our fears to, share our anxiety with or just reach out for help to get us through a difficult moment in time.
Taking that first step to seek help and see a counsellor can be really difficult, sometimes we can't face sharing the feelings we would normally share with our closest family members or friends or we don't want to admit we aren't coping as well as we usually do with things happening in our lives or we just can't find the time in our busy lives to fulfil our own needs. Sometimes talking to someone not involved your life makes it easier to explore your fears, feelings or anxieties and vocalise your thoughts without fear of judgements or opinions.
As a qualified Person-Centred counsellor and Holistic Therapist I will facilitate and accompany you on your journey of self-discovery, supporting you to find your answers.
What is Person Centred Counselling...?
It was developed by Carl Rogers in the 1950’s. His belief is that given the right environment of non-judgement, unconditional positive regard and empathy, we all hold the answers to our own problems and questions in life.
He believed we have an innate potential to live a fulfilled live, however, conditions imposed on us as children, traumas we have suffered and negative habits we have learned as protection, have obstructed this potential.
His belief, that research has shown, is, given the support, space and time to accept ourselves for who we truly are allows us to heal and move towards a more fulfilled life.

Depression, Stress and Anxiety

‘I will accept you with compassion and walk with you as you grow towards empowerment’. Carl Rogers
Get to Know Me
Helping You Move Forward
In addition to working with private clients, I volunteer with Waves Counselling Project, which is specifically for survivors of Domestic Abuse.
Being with my clients, as they have journeyed through some difficult situations, showing them empathy and honesty, I feel I have supported my clients break through some of the obstacles that seem to be holding them back in life.
Life's too short to be unhappy, unsure, or unfulfilled. I am here to be with my clients whilst they achieve a more positive outlook on life, helping them to discover their own tools necessary to empower themselves to get them there.
‘Become your true self, show the world who you really are, and what you were born to be’.
