    How I can help you

    In all areas of my work, I aim to create an environment and a therapeutic relationship within which you feel safe, and can explore whatever issues you bring. I will treat you with respect, will try to understand you and your experiences, will be genuine in our relationship and will not be judgmental.

    What to expect

    I will provide you with an opportunity to talk confidentially about how you feel, to become more self-aware, and to work towards a more satisfying and authentic life. I make every effort to provide a supportive relationship within which you feel safe enough to explore the problems you are facing. I do this in ways which respect your values, abilities and culture.

    Our work will be about self-discovery, and about finding solutions which are right for you, rather than receiving advice or being told what to do.
