About Counselling & Psychotherapy
Therapy offers you a safe, confidential place to talk about your life and anything that may be confusing, painful or uncomfortable. It allows you to talk with someone who is trained to listen empathically and to support you explore things in order to make the changes you choose.
I believe that my clients have the desire and capacity to move towards living meaningful and fulfilling lives, and that they are the experts of their own experience. I will therefore not give you advice or offer solutions to your challenges. I will work with you to help you understand yourself more fully, discover your own answers and access your inner resources, within the safety and containment of the therapeutic relationship. With greater self-awareness and self-acceptance, I have faith that you will be able to make positive changes as and when you want to, taking responsibility for your choices, leading to a more satisfying life.
