To IKON Students – My approach is warm, encouraging and respectful. I value listening (something which has sadly become all too rare in our society!), exploring emotions and helping you build on your strengths. I believe it is through being heard, understood and accepted that people recover from the painful experiences that life throws at us all. My goal is to assist you in understanding and accepting yourself and in finding a place of greater calm and strength within yourself. In counselling students of therapy courses, an additional goal is to facilitate your developing insight into your own fallibilitites (we all have them!), blind spots and triggers as these must be borne in mind when you yourself graduate and start working with clients. Additionally, helping you experience and cope with the vulnerability we can all feel as clients will provide you with a real life understanding of what your clients may one day go through.
