About me and my therapy practice

Apart from being a counsellor and systemic practitioner I also offer training in understanding mental health, keeping mentally healthy and on the signs of mental health decline. I run groups for adults on assertiveness, anger, self awareness, low mood and anxiety. I also run groups for parents to help them help their children who may experiencing similar issues. Whilst I do work with children, generally if they are junior school age or younger, the work I have found most successful for that age bracket is whole family work. I only work with people who want to make change. I do not work with people whose family or friends, however well meaning, have sent them. This is due to ethical considerations and because this is rarely successful. I believe we all deserve to maximise our potential and live contented healthy lives. If these principles are in line with your own and you would like to meet to see if you would like to work with me and for me to decide if I am best placed to help you, please email or phone me and leave me your details.

Qualifications include Bsc Psychology, Diploma Integrative Humanistic Counselling, Post Grad Diploma- Applied Systemic theory.  I also am committed to continuous personal development via regular workshops, keeping up to date with current literature and keeping healthy as a practitioner.
