Welcome | What is counselling | Contact | Where I work | Stepping Out

  • Available

I am here to meet you with whatever you choose to bring to counselling.  I will work with you, as appropriate, to raise your awareness of things that limit growth and wellbeing, and to help you make your own choices about the future.
  • Relational

The context in which I work with clients is the relationship that we build; the interaction between client and counsellor allows you as client to explore familiar patterns of behaviour as well as new ways of being.  Within the safe parameters of the counselling relationship, ethically established, we are able to expand your repertoire of responses, giving you confidence as you take what you have learned back into your daily life.
  • Creative

Trained according to the Gestalt model of counselling, my approach is creative and flexible, responding to the needs of the client and open to experiment in a supportive atmosphere.  Gestalt counselling is a holistic approach, recognising that our minds and bodies are inseperable and that dis-ease can be expressed in physical, emotional and spiritual ways.
