About me and my therapy practice
My aim is to help you on your journey, wherever you are presently and where you wish your next steps to take you, at a pace and destination of your choosing. My background was in high-pressured IT Management until 2009 when I retrained as a counsellor.
I provide face to face counselling and therapy for clients from aged 11 upwards, which can be open ended - based on a person-centred approach, or time limited - based on Solution Focused Brief Therapy. I have wide experience in counselling clients suffering from the effects of bereavement, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, anger, and significant events in childhood and teenage years.
I provide a confidential, supportive and when necessary, a challenging environment to resolving issues. I have regular supervision and have professional insurance. I have an Enhanced DBS (CRB).
I offer discounted rates based on income.
