About Me:

I am a trainee ‘person centred counsellor’. I am often described as ‘deep’, warm and calm by others. I think of myself as creative, curious, and flexible.
Perhaps, like you, I have needed some help before, but I didn’t find help for myself until I was ‘made’ to. You already have my admiration in looking for a counsellor.
Person centred theory gave me a process to follow to find an authentic ‘me’. I found a genuine self, and from this point on, my journey become much more, simple, enjoyable, and calm. My journey became an adventure with life transformed.
I am training and volunteering, to be a part of that transformation for others. To help find your answers to enable your growth and change, like others have done for me. I consider being part of your journey, an honour, and a privilege.
I have been training to be a counsellor for 4-5 years.
My experiences from life along the way have been addictions, drugs, PTSD, narcissism, identity and existential crisis, relationships, marriage, and divorce. I’ve also had experience with neurodivergence.

What to Expect:

There isn’t a right or wrong to how you should live or what you should do. Our goal is to find your ‘right or wrong’. This can only be done with self-reflection, self-awareness, self-discovery. This exploration can only really happen when in a comfortable and trusting environment or relationship. So, this is what you can expect from our work together.

My Approach:

My approach is person-centred. This works by bringing into awareness your true values, thoughts, and beliefs. Your preferences and needs are paramount to the work together. So ‘my approach’ is really ‘our approach’ based on what you need as an individual, which may change and evolve as you do. I feel person centred therapy puts you in the driving seat for change, with me alongside you, holding your map, working as a team to achieve your goals.

Area of Focus:

Area of focus? The centre of you, and whatever you bring into the room.

Lets Connect:

Many of the choices I have made for me have been with flexibility for future clients in mind and I will try to be as accommodating as possible to meet your needs and schedule.
If you wanted to discuss anything or have a talk to see if I am right for you, I am more than happy to connect to see if we could be a good fit for you.
