Compassion and respect for my clients perhaps best summarises my approach. My role as counsellor is to facilitate a gentle exploration of a person's life and the challenges they face - from their sense of self to their relationships with others - significant others, friends, and colleagues. I draw on my own sense of self, my education, training, and work experience, as well as my own lived experience to provide an authentic and balanced approach.
