About me and my therapy practice

Are you experiencing general feelings of anxiety or depression? Do you face feelings of low self-esteem or confidence, or sense sadness that at times feels overwhelming?

You may be feeling overwhelmed for many different reasons such as bereavement, life changing events/conditions or trauma, or that life experiences are catching up with you. At times like this it helps to be able to talk to someone who will listen unconditionally, and without judgement, to support you in exploring those feelings. I offer respect and empathy, as well as providing you with space to search for the best way forward for you. 

I understand how difficult it can be making that first step asking for help, but together we can make that journey more bearable and help you to look forward. I work with clients upwards from age 18 years. I currently offer face to face, online and telephone counselling from my own private and safe counselling room, following Covid protocols.

Please call, text or email me to arrange an initial free of charge 20 minute Zoom call/ phone call, so we can discuss what you are looking for, and to see how we can work together. If you are then happy to work together, we can arrange our first session and agree the frequency of our sessions.
