Counselling Approach

My genuine care for others drives my passion for helping individual adults and young people to achieve their goal to live a more fulfilled and enriched life.


I firmly believe that the majority of people are motivated to grow and change, and that counselling is a helpful way of obtaining the support and skills needed to achieve long-lasting positive personal growth.


I will encourage and assist you to become self-aware and find your own solutions as I strongly believe that you are the expert in your own life.


In my practice, I utilise a range of evidence-based treatment approaches including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Gestalt Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Therapy, Person-Centred Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy.


My personal approach is warm, understanding and down-to-earth, and I offer you a safe and non-judgemental environment to explore your struggles and concerns.
