My personal profile

My experience has taught me that the most important aspect of counselling is the relationship between the counsellor and the client. I have found that when the relationship is trusting and comfortable, it allows any problem to be looked into and potentially resolved.

I believe that therapy needs to be individually tailored to each person. Fundamentally, although I do draw upon my experiences of offering therapy and my own knowledge of the different methods of counselling, it will be a unique experience with each client.

People aren’t all the same; what depression feels like for one person may be very different for another, and that is why we would need to explore it together.

If you want to get in touch, you can send me an email, or give me a ring.
