I see clients on Monday morning and Thursday afternoon/evening. During lockdown I am only able to offer online and telephone counselling. Zoom, Skype and telephone counselling can be a safe and confidential option with many benefits. When restrictions are eased I will resume a face to face service. 

About me and my therapy practice

I am 'Relate' trained and as such I have considerable experience of Couple Counselling and Relationship work including family issues where there are communication difficulties and relationship breakdown. Our initial session is an opportunity for each person to speak and to be listened to so we can work out a way forward based on your needs. I welcome couples from traditional or same sex relationships.

I had an integrative training which includes Psychodynamic and Systemic theory and practice. Psychodynamic therapy looks at our internal constructs and making connections between past and present and Systemic Family Therapy looks for patterns in the web of connections we make within our culture and family system. I am also a trained hypnotherapist and am able to use relaxation techniques to the benefit of clients.

Practice description

I specialise in relationship issues, whether it is your partner, family, children, friends or work issues. Having the space to consider what your needs are and what is important may help you to look towards the future that you want.

I work with a range of personal and relationship issues that include anxiety, depression, sadness and bereavement, panic attacks, low self-esteem, stress, and relationship issues. You do not need to have a particular issue to come to counselling, just that something does not feel quite right.

Counselling can be both short or long term and I like to offer regular reviews along the way to establish that you are getting what you need from the work. Taking the first step towards making real change in your life could be talking things through with a qualified counsellor.

My first session

I offer both short and longer term counselling, and do regular reviews along the way. The first meeting is an assessment session to discuss your needs and plan a way forward. There are many kinds of counselling and psychotherapy and if I feel I am not the best fit for you I will support and signpost you to other services.
