About me and my therapy practice

Covid-19 information. We are all in unchartered waters due to the virus. I offer counselling using Zoom, Teams or telephone that flexes around you and your life. Online therapy is access to professional support at a time when you maybe, separated from your usual network. Since lock down, I have undergone training specific to working with current issues such as grief, loss, anxiety as well as relationship, work and finance difficulties. I know from experience that making the first step and seeking help can be daunting but working with the right counsellor can be transformative. If any of the list below strikes a cord, then talking therapies could work for you. Life feels like a constant struggle and you feel stuck, You feel alone and on a different wavelength to others. The present moment is lost and you feel distracted by unresolved issues and feelings linked to the past. The record is stuck and there is endless mind chatter causing tension. Unhealthy patterns of behaviour leave you feeling knocked off course. If the answer is yes to any of these, I offer you the chance to explore with me the thoughts, feelings and behaviours at the root of the issues. Together, we will work at your pace to identify where you want to be and what will help you get there.
