About me and my therapy practice

I am a Senior Accredited Counsellor with over 30 years experience of working with couples and individuals.

My specialist areas include relationship difficulties (I am a trained and experienced couples counsellor), bereavement, grief and loss, depression and anxiety, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, work-life balance.

I will give you time to talk and listen carefully to what you say, then help you to find a way forward that feels right for you. I am not here to judge you, but to help you to find your own resources and work at your own pace.

Practice description

When working with a couple, I will make sure that there is time and space for both parties to be heard.

With both couples and individuals, I will check that you feel fully heard. I will offer my perspective, but not tell you what to do. My aim is to help you to explore your situation fully and access your own resources.

I will sometimes suggest further reading or exercises that might be helpful, but will always check that these feel right for you.

My first session

This session takes the form of an assessment, and provides an opportunity for you to decide whether you feel comfortable talking to me and also for me to consider whether counselling might be of help to you.

If I feel that counselling is not appropriate for you, I will discuss this with you and try to direct you to alternative sources of help.

There is no obligation for you to book further sessions if you decide that counselling is not for you.
