For all my clients I provide a respectful and non-judgemental service.

I do not provide advice but I do engage in a collaborative relationship that facilitates people to access their own internal resources.

I offer a balance of support and challenge.
I use a range of techniques, tools and exercises to look at ideas, thoughts, feelings, and patterns of behaviour.

There are many similarities between Coaching and Counselling. They both involve one-to-one support and are time boundaried, confidential discussions.  However they can each be more helpful in different situations.

My approach is “Humanistic Integrative” which means that I draw on a range of approaches and tailor them to your needs.  This helps with depression, bereavement, loss, anxiety and relationship problems by supporting people to:

Generally counselling is most effective when sessions are held on a regular basis, usually at weekly intervals. I recommend a one-off session to new clients so that we can see how we feel working together and discuss any concerns. If we agree to continue I suggest an initial contract for six sessions.
This is just a guide, I would be more than happy to talk this through with you.
