I am an integrative counsellor which means that I draw on a number of different approaches to inform my practice. As every human is unique, not everybody works in the same way.
I work in a way that is professional, empathic, warm and attentive.
I will aim to help you gain self-awareness, insight and clarity in the here-and-now through listening, being present and creating a safe space for you to explore feelings confidentially and without judgement.
You are most welcome to connect with me with any questions you may have.
