I am a BACP Accredited Person Centred counsellor and I see every person as a unique individual. We all have an innate drive to live our lives in the most fulfilled and satisfying way possible but sometimes our environment, our relationships or life events make this difficult or impossible and we become stuck and emotionally distressed. I believe you have the ability to work things out for yourself but sometimes, in order to do that, you need a safe space and someone alongside you to listen in a non-judgemental way, offering empathy and honesty, an environment where you feel safe to explore the issues that are distressing or troubling you, and where you are free to express your thoughts, emotions and feelings. I will help you look at things that you may not have looked at before – maybe they are too confusing or too painful; maybe you feel anger or shame; perhaps youÕre feeling depressed or anxious. I will do my utmost to support you and hold you in that safe space, enabling you to become more self-aware, encouraging personal growth and helping you to be more in control of making the sort of positive changes you want to experience in your life. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and bound by their ethical framework (visit www.bacp.co.uk for more information). I am a LINK trained and approved adoption counsellor, able to undertake work with clients for whom adoption is a presenting issue. I have post graduate training in Person Centred Couples Therapy and Emotion Focused Therapy for Couples.
