I am a supportive and empathic listener and observer for my clients, throughout times of distress, confusion, loss and despair. The relationship between me and my clients is based on trust, honesty and respect, and this is at the very heart of my counselling.I work with adults in a person-centred way, which means I am with my clients as a fellow human being, rather than an ‘expert’, and my clients can explore their emotions and relationships in their own way, at their own pace. Counselling of this kind can bring about real personal growth as clients gain insight into themselves, in a safe, non-judgemental space, without being told what to do. I sometimes take sessions outside, into natural spaces, to integrate movement and connection to nature to the work, as these can be very powerful healing agents.I have experience of working with clients with long-term medical conditions, depression, despair, loss and relationships issues. I regularly attend continued professional development training courses to further expand my experience and develop my awareness and practice.
