About me

Counselling in Weston-Super-Mare, Burnham-on-Sea and North Somerset.

My counselling approach

I offer a private and confidential humanistic counselling service, in a safe and non-judgemental setting. It is my belief that we all have the innate ability to self-heal when provided with empathy, compassion and a safe space to explore our inner most thoughts and feelings.

My practice is aimed at promoting personal development and self-esteem while reducing the symptoms of trauma, anxiety and depression. I strive to empower my clients to develop their intuition and expand their awareness so they may gain greater acceptance of self, reduce emotional distress, and live fuller more rewarding lives.

As a person-centred counsellor the core conditions of empathy, positive regard and congruence form the bedrock of my practice, however I will integrate other modalities such as cognitive behavioural therapy, compassion-focused therapy or mindfulness when appropriate.
