About me and my therapy practice

• Are you struggling with what is happening for you at the moment?

• Are you confused about your feelings - maybe not in a good place right now?

• Challenges in our lives such as relationship breakdown, friends abandoning us, student life, new responsibilities in the family, or work situations, can leave us feeling confused and in a tough place.

I am a qualified psychotherapist / counsellor offering appointments that include evenings and Sat mornings. I also offer telephone counselling.

I have helped people with low self-esteem, performance and study anxiety, low wellbeing at work, relationship breakdowns, divorce, anxiety, depression, bereavement, grief, shame, and feeling that you are not in the place you want to be in life. Having lived abroad I have experience in the grief of relocation and loss of a sense of belonging.

I trained in person-centred or humanistic counselling meaning our time together will not be about offering a pre-determined life-fix but involve listening to you and your unique experiences. I bring integrity and warmth to my work and offer you unconditional acceptance.

Many of us aim to cope with difficult experiences such as life changes at home, pressures at work, and emotions such as anger, depression, bereavement, isolation, and low self-esteem by ourselves. However, it is being accompanied by a trained therapist where your realities are taken seriously, that facilitates your personal power, building self-esteem, to support your confidence to find new ways of being you.

I am a registered therapist with the BACP (MBACP) with a home-based private practice, close to Shrewsbury Hospital and the A5, offering private parking.

I have an MA in Counselling from the University of East Anglia (UEA), Master's in Philosophy from Birmingham University, and have held a number of Board positions.

Costs: Daytime £40, Evenings (and Sat AM) £45
