About me and my therapy practice

Due to coronavirus guidelines, I am currently working with clients via phone or online video conferencing rather than face to face.

I'm a qualified and BACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist. I aim to work in a warm, trustworthy and down-to-earth way, to support you with whatever is troubling you, whether it be anxiety, panic, stress, depression, relationships, work, or other issues.

We all have times when life feels challenging. Feeling heard and supported, thinking through options and exploring the difficult aspects and feelings in our lives can make a real difference - it can help us towards profound and long-lasting change.

In counselling terms, I’m an integrative therapist. This means I work in a flexible, collaborative way, drawing on a number of therapeutic approaches, so that together we can find the best way of working for you. Some clients may prefer a more practical approach, perhaps considering solutions to specific problems, or developing coping skills. Others may want to explore past experiences, their sense of self or how they relate to others.

Whatever brings you to therapy, I will always try to listen to you. My aim is to help you in working through your thoughts and feelings to find the goals and decisions that feel right for you.

My first session

My first session is an opportunity for us get to know each other a bit, to talk through what's bringing you to therapy and start to think about how therapy might help.
