About me and my therapy practice

I help adults overcome a range of emotional difficulties, including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and lack of confidence.

I also have a special interest in early pregnancy loss counselling (please message me for Miscarriage and Ectopic Pregnancy Counselling Information).

My natural approach to counselling offers the opportunity for us to work respectfully together with purpose. Clients quite quickly report that they have a sensation of feeling "lighter", as though a weight's been lifted from their shoulders. Talking about the issues that are troubling you helps clarify your thoughts and understand more about yourself.  This allows new ideas to emerge.  Different perceptions can soon help you to recover your emotional balance, take control back into your own hands and begin to feel more satisfied with life.  

As an integrative counsellor, I am able to draw on a variety of theories to suit the needs of each person at any particular time. This can involve exploring what's happening in your life right now, looking at how the past can still impact us in the present and discovering ways to effect change.

Prior to private practice I worked as a college counsellor in addition to several years working within the NHS where I combined my health-care role with counselling training. When not working, there's nothing better for me than being out in the beautiful Somerset countryside, or a trip to the Lakes!

Finding a counsellor who you can build up a good relationship with is vital, so you are welcome to get in touch for a chat without feeling you have to commit to anything. Then, if it feels right, we can arrange an initial appointment.
