My counselling approach is to build an open relationship and trust between us.

When you're ready and at your own pace, we can work through problems and issues you are facing together, with the aim of empowering you to live the life you want, to the full.
Many issues can be a result of the unique combination of how we have been brought up, our individual backgrounds and early years experiences. You may be unaware of how these influences may impact your life today. We can work to explore and understand how you could live your life differently in the future and break unwanted patterns of thinking, feeling or behaving.
