About

What I offer:

  • I am non-directive, for instance; I do not tell you how many sessions you need, how to use the session, how to change, or what you ‘should do’.
  • I may offer some education about specific conditions or make suggestions based on Psychological Theory, however, I know that the best person to make decisions is you, and I will support you in building the confidence/skills to do this.·        
  • I will always be honest; for instance, I will say if I am not the most suitable Counsellor for you, or If I feel that there is a obstacle, preventing change, that can not be dealt within the remit of Counselling.·         
  • I see the counselling session as a level ground where we both are equally important in the session. Not only do I simply just believe this to be true, I believe it helps people to feel comfortable, be honest, and share difficult thoughts and feelings if they arise during the session, without fear of judgement.·
