Hello, welcome to my profile and thank you for allowing me this moment of your precious time.

It would be my pleasure to assist you in finding a solution to the difficulties that you are facing. I work from my home, and am trained in all current and relevant counselling theories, my preferred method is to work with my clients using person centred therapy

Person Centred Therapy gives the client a great deal of control over the speed and direction of their therapy, without specific agendas they're free to proceed within therapy to enable them to gain success and defeat their issues at a comfortable pace for the client.

I liken it to imagining that we are in a car together going on a journey you are in the driving seat, you are in control so we only go as fast or as slow as you wish.

A large proportion of the people I see are lost on their journey through life. They find it easier to continue with help from a navigator or map or even sat-nav, and sometimes it is even simpler, just having someone to talk to provides the help needed.

As your therapist, I may suggest going this way or that way, many people like to have a map or sat-nav with them as this gives assurance, an alternative route can be proposed that may provide a different road and a different landscape maybe even a different horizon.

The map feature on mobile phones became a standard app simply because nobody likes to get lost, everyone tells you that life is tough, a challenge that sometimes seems much too much to continue, a wrong turn can be scary and confusing but nobody worries about using the map feature to get them back on the straight and narrow..

Maybe something happened a long long way back in our journey or maybe it is a particularly difficult and confusing part of our continuing voyage. Whatever it is? everyone benefits from having that support with them as they travel.

All counselling is a joint partnership between therapist and client, and it has been catagorically proven that it is this relationship and the strength of the alliance between client and therapist which provides the most success.

If you feel therapy hasn't worked for you in the past, that may just have been because the bond between you and your therapist wasn't as strong as you both would have liked. Sometimes just like trying to find the right jacket, it can take trying on many different jackets to get the one that fits perfectly just for you.

My goal is to empower you to feel comfortable looking behind you at whatever happened in the past, and stand strong facing the future with excitement and enthusiasm, with confidence and self-assurance knowing that you are able to achieve and develop the personal goals you desire.
