Hello and welcome. I am an experienced counsellor and I can help you address your troubles in a safe, professional space without judgement. I provide emotional support in a peacfeul environment for exploration and growth.
How I Can Help
I use person centred approach and draw from other theories and practical elements, working at your pace, with your individual needs.
Using this approach with the right ingredients for positive change, I support you by working with the natural tendency towards the most effective way of being. This approach has been proven to be effective through many years of research including a broader positive impact on society.
Depending on your needs and preferences, elements like focusing and mindfulness and meditation can also be powerful additional tools to support and enhance the therapeutic journey, during sessions and/or in between.
