About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor who offers a comfortable, safe and confidential environment for individuals, couples or families to discuss concerns, problems and thoughts about personal difficulties. I will help you to find your own solutions to resolve the situation that is bothering you and become more content. I am a good listener and will provide reassurance so you feel comfortable enough to share your private thoughts and feelings. To make our sessions productive you will get my full, undivided attention, understanding and empathy and I encourage a positive rapport to build trust between us to make our time together effective. As an integrative therapist, I adapt my way of working to suit your needs. By working therapeutically I can enable you to manage and maintain you own mental health and well-being. You will learn to understand the difficulties you may be experiencing in your life and to make the desired changes that will empower you to move forward. I offer counselling for a variety of different issues, which may be relationship based, career-orientated or in areas such as addictions, eating disorders, trauma and loss. I will establish a counselling contract, which outlines what will be covered during our sessions. Where required, I may refer you to other helpful agencies. I am passionate about my work and aim to bring about positive changes in people’s lives and welcome the opportunity to work with you.
