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.I have experience in counselling clients suffering from the effects of bereavement, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, anger, and significant events in childhood and teenage years.

My background was in high-pressured IT Management until 2009 when I retrained as a counsellor. 

I provide  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 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 can offer discounted rates for those on low income or benefits.
