About me and my therapy practice

You may be experiencing relationship problems or a significant life change, be struggling with negative thoughts or have suffered a bereavement or other loss.  In these circumstances it can be good to  talk to someone unconnected to you and/or your situation.

I will offer you a warm welcome and aim to provide a safe, non-judgemental space where you can feel valued and understood.  Together we will determine the focus of our work and explore any difficulties you may be experiencing.  I will support you in gaining clarity and understanding.  

I am an integrative counsellor (using a number of different approaches) and tailor my work to my clients' needs.  My experience is varied having spent time counselling adults and young people (over 18) with issues such as relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression, work/study/health stresses and low self-esteem. I have also worked extensively with bereaved clients. 

Our work may involve exploring past relationships and the effect of these on present experiences.  We may consider how the way you think about things affects your emotions and behaviour.  You may benefit from exploring some tools and techniques to help manage anxiety or depression.  Whatever the problem I will listen and hear you and facilitate you in finding a positive way forward. 

I am available at various times during the day (not evenings or weekends).  Please text or email me to arrange an initial telephone conversation.
