I offer person-centred counselling to adults and can combine this with other therapeutic tools to suit each client’s particular needs. Person-centred counselling means I will listen to you in a non-judgemental way and will work at your pace without telling you what to do. Whilst counselling doesn’t claim to be the answer to all difficulties, many people find if they are listened to in a non-judgemental way and in a safe environment, they are enabled to understand themselves and their needs more deeply and freer to explore different ways of looking at their life. As a consequence, individuals can discover more effective ways of living and coping, and become more self-directing as they develop insights and solutions to the issues important to them. I adhere to the I.S.P.C.’s (International Society for Professional Counsellors) code of ethics – an organisational member of B.A.C.P. – which means I am committed to providing a safe, confidential and professional approach. Sessions usually last 1 hour, once a week. Advanced DBS checked.
