About me and my therapy practice

Change is constant, change is inevitable. Life moves us in different directions affecting every aspect of our lives. Our relationships, both personal and professional, change. Our relationship with ourselves changes over time.

We can have a tricky time expressing the impact this has on us. We can feel stuck, overwhelmed and weighed down by the load we carry. The juggling act of modern life, having too many balls in the air, can be exhausting.

Counselling offers you a time to rest that load, maybe even leave some of it with me. A time to reflect, putting aspects of your life into perspective. We look for ways to change the direction of your life or just change lanes slightly. 

Practice description

I provide a comfortable, non-judgemental, therapeutic environment. I work with clients on a one to one basis. I aim to create a space of truth and trust, confidentially finding our way through the issues clients bring.

My first session

I offer a fifteen minute phone consultation. It helps to break the ice and give us some insight to see if we can work therapeutically together. We can also talk about availability of sessions and, ultimately, what you're looking to get out of counselling.
