About me and my therapy practice

Life can get overwhelming, and you might find yourself at a crossroads, feeling stuck or seeking clarity amid chaos. Remember, it's okay to feel lost, anxious, or weighed down by your emotions; these are natural responses to life's ups and downs.

I offer a compassionate space where your feelings and experiences are heard and valued and where I can join you on your path to self-discovery and healing.

You might be navigating various emotional landscapes, such as anxiety, depression, relationship issues, self-esteem struggles, life transitions, or addiction. I've dedicated 18 years to the addiction field and become a psychotherapist in this time, working with individuals facing varied challenges.

I am:

Non-Judgmental: Here, you're free to express yourself without fear of judgment. It's a secure and confidential space to be your true self.

Empathetic: I approach counselling with a deep understanding of your unique story, struggles, and strengths. I listen without bias and offer steadfast support.

Collaborative: Our journey is a partnership. I'll guide you, but the direction is yours to determine. We'll set achievable goals and work at your pace.

Believe in Holistically Healing People: I believe in a holistic approach, recognizing that emotional well-being is intertwined with various aspects of your life.

Practice description

It's essential to know that I understand the weight of your experiences and the emotions you're carrying. I have dedicated myself to this field for many years, with extensive experience in working with individuals facing various challenges, including addiction and mental health issues.

I've walked alongside clients who have faced similar but not the same emotions and situations, and I've seen the transformative power of counselling in their lives. My commitment to you is rooted in empathy, respect, and a deep belief in your ability to heal and grow.

You don't have to navigate these challenges alone. Whether you're in search of clarity, healing, or personal growth, I am here to provide unwavering support and guidance. Your journey of self-discovery and transformation begins with the first step – reaching out

My first session

I offer a free 20 minute telephone consultation to help me understand why you're reaching out and to answer any questions you may have. During this conversation, if we agree that we can work together, we will arrange our first session.

The first session is focused on getting more details about the issues that have brought you into counselling and the agreement of working together.

Take the First Step, you don't have to navigate your challenges alone. Whether you're seeking clarity, healing, or personal growth, I'm here to support you. Let's embark on this journey of self-discovery and transformation together.

Contact Information: Feel free to reach out for a free initial consultation. I'm available throughout the week and offer face-to-face, online, or phone sessions. I also offer walk and talk therapy.

Your healing path begins with the first step—reaching out. I look forward to connecting with you.
