 I would like to congratulate you on having the courage to take this step in looking after your 'Emotional Well-being' and mental health and not suffering alone.

I understand how difficult it can be to choose the right therapist as I have also been on this journey. 

I believe counselling is about the quality of the therapeutic relationship and how you and I build trust together.

Person-Centred Approach

When we begin work with a new client, we usually start by giving  a simple outline of how a Person-Centred counsellor will work with you.

 Our work is founded on the principles of Carl Rogers and the Person-Centred Approach and  embrace and work within these values. 


We believe in the positive nature of all human beings. Everyone strives to do the best for themselves, even in the worst situations.

Child and Young People Therapy

It is our priority to make sure we build a safe and trusting relationship with all  young people so they feel confident in exploring their difficulties. 

Children and young people experience challenges in their lives too and sometimes need help to overcome them.

Adult & Child Personal Development

Personal development is a lifelong process. It is a way for people to assess their skills and qualities, consider their aims in life and set goals in order to realise and maximise their potential.

There are a multitude of reasons why people seek help, and there doesn’t have to be a label for things to feel wrong. We can support you to make sense of your feelings and gain a new sense of perspective, no matter what the problem is.
