MY MISSION STATEMENT

Guiding You On the Path of Self-Healing

I truly believe that the relationship between a therapist and their client is unique and special; it needs to feel right, safe and productive. I have created a warm space in my home to encourage a therapeutic alliance between me and my clients.  In choosing me as your counsellor you are making the decision to trust me with your inner most thoughts and feelings and I honour that by working ethically, legally and within my limits of proficiency. I recognise the vulnerability and bravery it can take to make the decision to talk to a mental health professional and I am focused on offering an environment that is safe, nurturing, non-judgmental and empowering.

HOW I WORK

Walking along side  you every step of the way

EMPOWERING THE INDIVIDUAL ON THEIR JOURNEY

Here For You

The way I work is primarily through Person Centered talking therapy but there are times when I  will draw on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Transactional Analysis and creative methods too. My hope would be for you to receive a positive experience of counselling with an aim for you to get an understanding of your presenting issue. My role isn't to tell you what to do or give you solutions, what we CAN do is work collaboratively to get an understanding of how you relate to people, where your thought patterns come from and what makes you YOU.

A NURTURING ENVIRONMENT

Feel safe

My practice is located in Whitchurch near Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire. I work therapeutically with young people and adults. I provide a warm, nurturing space in my home which I think helps the therapeutic process. I want my clients to experience an environment that makes them  feel welcome and accepted. I will listen to your individual emotional needs and together we can unpick, fathom and question what you are experiencing.
