Mates in Mind

Hello and welcome to Emotional Therapeutic Counselling. I love my therapy work and can offer you a non-judgemental, empathic, confidential and caring counselling approach. My focus concentrates on exploring your needs and improving your wellbeing. My style of counselling is person-centred and includes talking and creative therapies. I believe I have the passion, knowledge and experience to guide you through investigating short-term issues as well as core emotional wellbeing. My privilege is to guide you through your therapy sessions to help you find the best path forward.

I am a member of The National Counselling Society and the Foundation for Emotional Therapeutic Counselling
