About me and my therapy practice

Hello! đź‘‹  

I am a registered Counsellor & Psychotherapist and I offer open-ended and time-limited therapy to individuals, couples and groups.

How are you? 

It can be hard to acknowledge that you are not feeling okay, and even harder pretending that you are. If you’re struggling to cope with something, or you feel lost, or stuck, if you’re unhappy in your relationship/marriage, or you feel numb or detached after experiencing something traumatic; I may be able to help. 

What I can offer

We can work together to develop a safe, reflective space for you to gently get in touch with your feelings; a crucial step in the healing process. We can work together for an agreed period of time with a specific focus in mind, or we could leave it open-ended to explore at greater depth. You can decide which feels right for you.

I provide a confidential space where we can explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, pay close attention to those deeply held beliefs and uncover any unexplored feelings or attitudes. We can work through any trauma that you may be experiencing in a way that feels safe and supportive to you.

It takes courage to acknowledge that you need some help. If you get in touch, I’ll respond to you promptly! We can arrange a face to face consultation where we can gently explore your reasons for wanting counselling, what you hope to gain, discuss any additional needs or concerns that you may have and get a sense of whether it feels right for us to work together.

Ready to get in Touch? 

I am ready to welcome you! Why not get in touch today?
