My ethos and style of counselling is Eclectic. My training and background includes various theories and skills, which I have combined to ensure the best suitability for all clients. From Knowledge and experience it shows that, as all clients are unique not one approach to counselling is likely to suit everyone. Another key to counselling is in the strength of the commitment and relationship between the client and the counsellor. This is true to everyday life where not everyone will suit be suited.

I aim to pin point what has brought clients’ to counselling, what the hopes, fears and expectations are, to raise self awareness and clarity, and then decide what steps can be taken towards making changes and leading a more fulfilled life. I give my insight, feedback, understanding and guidance. Also the feedback from clients is equally useful as the process is about meeting the clients’ unique needs. Then clients can build self awareness, self esteem, gain clarity and understanding, and ultimately lead a more fulfilled life. For more information on What counselling is please click here.
