While loss is a universal experience, it can be one of the most devastating events in a person’s life. I have spent the last 15 years working with clients who have experienced loss helping them to find a way through it, establishing a new “normal”.

My counselling method/training is based on the Person Centred model developed by Carl Rogers, but is also informed by emotional focusing, mindfulness, and recent research/developments in neuroscience. Such knowledge helps me to tailor my approach to each unique person I work with, so that we can work together to find a way forward. I have been told I am easy to talk to and offer a safe, comfortable, accepting and non-judgmental environment. As a counsellor I aim to listen to you empathically, with compassion and acceptance, and rather than offering advice, will strive to understand your world and how you feel, with a view to offering new perspectives which will help you make the changes you wish to make in order to get through a difficult time or to live a happier and more fulfilling life.
