How I work

I am an integrative, humanistic counsellor. In plain English, that means I will encourage you to consider your feelings, and take responsibility for your thoughts, actions, choices. The emphasis will be on your self-development and achieving your potential.
I use my knowledge of several distinct theories, primarily drawing on the Person-centred therapy of Carl Rogers, and including Transactional Analysis (TA), Gestalt, Existentialism and Solution-focussed brief therapy, applying them in a way that is best for your needs.

I offer face-to-face appointments, and therapy via Skype, appear.in, Zoom, FaceTime, and phone, where appropriate, and an initial brief on-line consultation free of charge, to see what brings you to therapy and check if I can be of help. It is also for you to see if you would like to work with me as a counsellor.
