Hello and welcome to my page

Are you feeling are you feeling anxious or depressed? Have you experienced challenges and finding it difficult to cope?

How Remote Counselling Works

For many people, accessing therapy face to face can be difficult because of geographic location, mobility issues, limited time, childcare, or it may simply feel too daunting to meet a counsellor in person. I have found that in such circumstances it is possible to build a warm and trusting relationship online.

I have undertaken significant training in working in a range of online methods of communication and can offer you online counselling ‘live’, by video platform (ZOOM) or by telephone. You can choose whichever option you prefer.

My Approach

There are a number of theoretical approaches to counselling, the approach I use is Person-Centred.  Although I work slightly differently with each client as I am keen to offer  a bespoke approach to counselling; recognising and celebrating diversity. I respect the specific needs and personal culture of each individual.

I will not tell you what to do, or give advice, but I will provide a safe and confidential space where you can talk about yourself, your problems, concerns and hopes, and where you can decide what, if any, changes you want to make in your life. I will aim to help you in this process in a way that is supportive and empowering.  My hope that you will come to feel comfortable, trusting and supported enough to bring any issues you may wish to explore.

Counselling is a process which takes time and commitment. I hope that we can work together for as long as you feel necessary. Many issues can be resolved in short-term work, whilst others may require longer-term therapy.

“When the other person is hurting, confused, troubled, anxious, alienated, terrified; or when he or she is doubtful of self-worth, uncertain as to identity, then understanding is called for. The gentle and sensitive companionship of an empathic stance… provides illumination and healing. In such situations deep understanding is, I believe, the most precious gift one can give to another.”
