About me and my therapy practice

I offer general counselling for problems such as anxiety, panic, depression or anger.  I also work with couples experiencing relationship issues. I have specialist coaching training to support people in recovery from drug, alcohol and gambling addictions and also offer tailored treatment for people with different eating disorders whether anorexia, bulimia, binge eating or obesity. I work with individuals, couples and groups.  

Previous clients have said they.....

  • have felt some "relief" just from talking without feeling any sense of judgement
  • were surprised to realise how lifestyle & dietary factors can affect mood
  • have found new habits & small changes in mindset have boosted confidence & a sense of "can do"
  • felt happier than they did before.

I offer a professional and confidential service and look forward to meeting you if you decide to contact me.   If you would like a free introductory session of 20-30 mins by phone or in person, please contact me and we can arrange this.
