About me and my therapy practice

Counselling provides us with an opportunity to work through our difficulties in a safe therapeutic setting. We can use that opportunity to develop and change. While we cannot alter what has happened in our lives, we can enhance our understanding of past events and gain greater control over our future. Whether our difficulties come from within - such as feelings of doubt, anger, self worth - or come from outside - stress, depression, relationship difficulties - counselling can help make sense of those issues and take steps to resolve them. Since we are all different, I offer a variety of approaches, tailored to your individual needs. Whichever is the most suitable approach, we can work together in a way that feels right for you. I am an experienced senior accredited counsellor, working with people on a long or short term basis, or through employer referral. I also offer couples counselling. Please have a look at my website: which will give you further details.
