My Approach to Counselling

I offer you a warm, safe and confidential space to explore whatever may be troubling you. I bring empathy and sensitivity to our therapeutic relationship to help you feel at ease to talk openly. Together we’ll explore your emotions, thoughts and experiences with compassion and understanding, never judgement.

The therapeutic process aims to help you increase your own understanding and awareness. Through working together, I aim to help you gain some clarity, alleviate painful parts of what you’re living through and find the best way forward with you.

I adopt a humanist (or Person-Centred) approach to therapy. I believe that deep down you know yourself better than anyone else and with some help can find your own resources to bring about the change you’re looking for. Even if you’re not quite certain what that might be to start with - we can work that out together.

I work with adults on a one-to-one basis. I offer counselling both indoors in my therapy room, and outdoors through ‘walk and talk’. I'm based in North Nibley, Gloucestershire. If you prefer remote sessions, then I also offer sessions via video (Google Meet) or phone.

I usually meet you weekly, and sessions can continue for as many (or few) weeks as you wish.
