Need to talk? I specialise in anxiety and anger management.  With a gentle, supportive approach, I help you make sense of overwhelming emotions, heal relationships, build confidence, and feel calmer.

I offer help and guidance in resolving issues that are causing you pain and holding you back from the important things in life.

My first session

What happens in the sessions?

At the initial session we will discuss what you wish to achieve from the therapy process, and the kind of approach you would feel most comfortable with. I want you to feel comfortable and in control at all times.

I have a friendly informal style, and will do my best to make you feel completely at ease. You may want to take a practical approach and learn techniques and strategies to help you feel better as quickly as possible, or you might prefer to simply take your time exploring your feelings and working out why you feel the way you do.

Sessions last for 50 minutes each. There's also an option of a 'double session' if you'd like to discuss things more in-depth, or if you'd like to include some hypnotherapy. Whatever approach you wish to take, I'm happy to help you.

I realise that first step can be very daunting, but I encourage you to get in touch. Don't suffer in silence - reach out and get the support you need - it might just change your life. For my part, I promise to do my utmost to help make the whole process as smooth as possible.

Get in touch on 0791 240 8830.
