My counselling style is non-judgmenental. I aim to foster better communication, to build understanding and thus enable change.
My style as a counsellor is flexible and informal. I do not work to any sort of fixed programme of counselling or with a rigid framework, as I believe in tailoring my style to your needs as clients. At our first meeting we will discuss how you would like to work together, what your objectives are and what sort of approach you would like. I normally suggest that we meet weekly, but that is not fixed in stone, we can meet more or less often, generally at my practice in Wokingham, though we can also meet at your home if that is suitable.
I work with individuals (including young people), couples and families. In my couple and family work I often find that the key to success lies in finding the right way to communicate – both within the counselling environment and outside it. Problems may seem insurmountable, deadlocks may seem unbreakable but if we are able to listen to each other properly and respect their points of view, compromises can suddenly appear as if by magic.
In my work with individuals a cornerstone of my work is to help you develop a deeper understanding of yourself, in order that you can take control of your life, rather than letting events control you.
