Counselling Style

A rigorous five year training demanded on-going personal therapy throughout, which informs my understanding of how it feels to sit in the ‘other chair’.  More importantly, it leaves me totally without agenda – able to focus solely on what you bring, and your needs.   I neither set goals nor place any expectations on you.

You will find me an approachable and understanding robust therapist, able to hear whatever needs to be heard, and to manage painful feelings.  I strive to provide an honest, empathic and trustworthy environment where it feels possible to talk openly about personal issues without fear of judgement and with the assurance of total confidentiality.

Whilst silences present valuable space for the development of thought and psychological change, I understand a therapist who holds back can feel remote or persecutory.  My style is to engage with you in an empathic experience where silence is managed sensitively and productively. 

I treat respectfully the privilege of being entrusted with private thoughts and in return I resolve to deliver an experience of reliable, confidential, safe, ethical and informed professional counselling and psychotherapy.

If you still have some questions or would like to talk through your needs before making any commitment, please do call me on 0778 955 4675 or send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
