About me and my therapy practice

You may be feeling low, anxious, overwhelmed, or stuck.  Or you may be a couple struggling with your relationship. Life does not feel as good as it could be.  If so,  I can help you.  It can be hard to manage distressing emotions or address negative thoughts and behavioural patterns, on your own.   I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor and I support individuals and couples in  improving their well-being.   

I have successfully helped  a very diverse range of clients with anxiety, stress,  depression, low self esteem, health worries,  addiction,  bereavement,  relationship difficulties,  family issues,  infertility and many other challenges.

Whilst I work with clients on a very wide range of issues,  I  specialise in working with clients facing anxiety. Some of my clients suffer anxiety about particular issues or triggers, and many are living with a more chronic generalised anxiety disorder. I help clients with immediate anxiety management strategies and then work with them to relieve the deeper issues causing their anxiety. 

Finding a counsellor can be daunting. I appreciate this, but it can also be one of the best things you can do for yourself.  I am a friendly, professional and effective counsellor and work in a relational way, at your pace.  Clients feedback that I am warm and insightful.   

I have trained at the respected Minster Centre and  supplemented this with a variety of additional learning,  including at Tavistock Relationships, both based in London. I have also had a previous career in senior management. 

I am available on weekdays, day times and evenings, and Sunday evenings.  I charge  £60/70 for individuals and £90 for couples and offer a 50% reduced fee for the first session.
