About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced Counsellor, specialising in helping people with Depression, Anxiety, Anger and Childhood issues (including Aspergers Syndrome). This covers all ages from children to adults.

My approach will be a comprehensive look at your life, through your childhood, to the present day, to establish a way that will enable you to emotionally heal and accept the present, then looking at your life in a positive way.

Most issues are usually related to childhood and the environment in which you lived. I am trained to look beyond the presenting issue and establish what might have caused current difficulties in your life.

I will be working with you to think in a more positive way, which will help you to feel better, then behaving in an alternative way. This is called Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (C.B.T). Also, I use Mindfulness which is a meditation approach and is very effective when working with rumination (negative pattens of thinking)>

I work privately and provide a relaxing environment to talk through your issues. I also work in a school and youth organisation.

Through my work with young people I have an expertise in Special Educational Needs and I have counselled children and adolescents with Asperger's Syndrome, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (A.D.H.D) and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (O.C.D).
