About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified counsellor working with adults, adolescents and couples.

During my work as a counsellor - and as a human being living on this planet right now - I have come to believe that there are just times when we need support and understanding from someone other than our close friends and family. It does not necessarily mean we are in crisis; it may be that we need a confidential space in which to talk, to be heard, understood and not judged. Sometimes, we may just want to sit in a room with another person - someone warm and empathic - and give ourselves a chance to think, maybe to speak, maybe just to be.

This is what counselling offers. It is a safe, contained space within which to explore, to move in to a better, deeper and more accepting relationship with yourself and others through the support of a trained counsellor who will be beside you and with you as feelings, thoughts and emotions come up.

I deal with the day-to-day and immediate problems and challenges and look at what is happening for you now. I am aware that going in to counselling can feel momentous and many people feel nervous, worried and shy. My role is to help you through difficult times and to allay your fears and concerns and also to help maybe make tiny shifts so that things that appear maybe uncomfortable and insoluble become something that can be shared and worked through. It can be an illuminating journey we take together.

I offer an all-round therapeutic approach and my areas of expertise are:

Anxiety - Depression - Eating Disorders - Body Dysmorphia - Gender Identity - Panic Attacks - Mild Psychotic Incidents - Suicide Ideation - Couples - Adolescents - Anger Issues - Support for couples at every level of their relationship including better endings.

I have many clients post-separation and divorce who feel they need support when everything else seems difficult and tricky. I have also helped families who are struggling with a range of issues, especially often when their children reach the teenage years. Sometimes adolescents prefer counselling by themselves, sometimes with their families to work through what systems are in place that might need looking at.

I am happy to work in person and potentially on Skype / Facetime. I am also happy to have an initial session in person or by phone to work out what a person potentially needs.
