About me and my therapy practice

Are you struggling with anxiety or depression, feeling overwhelmed or stuck? Questions such as "Why do I feel this way?" or "Why does this keep happening to me?" can arise at anytime in our lives and leave us wondering, how can we feel differently and how do we get to live the lives we really want. If you feel this way and would like things to change I can help.

I am a BACP registered integrative relational counsellor and will ensure a calm and confidential space where we can look to understand what is happening for you and how your experiences might be shaping your life.

Your situation is unique to you, so we'll work in ways that feel right for you. This can be by looking at the present, considering the past, working creatively or bringing in mindfulness.

I specialise in working with feelings of anxiety, low mood and depression and the impact this has on your relationships and quality of life. Age is no barrier - I have worked with teenagers to those well into their 90s. 

In addition to my private practice, I work within a community service, seeing professional people, university students and housing clients looking to get back on their feet. I also provide counselling to pupils in a mixed secondary school and have previously worked in the NHS with patients who had been referred by their doctor.

Carl Jung said "I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become". I believe we can all make this choice. Together, we'll meet regularly to work through what's happening for you and how you are feeling.

The first introductory session is a reduced cost of £35 for 50 minutes as this is about getting to know one another and for us to decide if you would like to continue.
