There are many types of counselling modalities. Whilst I trained in person-centred/humanistic counselling, I prefer to work holistically to meet the needs of the individual client. I use solution-focused, drawing/artwork, visualisation, mindfulness, play therapy and other approaches to help support clients. I am open to working with clients in the way that best meets their needs. This is something that we can discuss during the sessions.

"Be the person you want to be, and create the future you want to see."
