I offer either Person Centred counselling or CBT therapy including CBTi (CBT for insomnia). We can discuss which we feel would be most beneficial or appropriate for you in our initial session. I currently have a waitlist until May 2024.

About me and my therapy practice

am a qualified person-centred counsellor and CBT therapist. I provide a warm, non-judgemental, empathic and confidential space to explore and work through issues, barriers and ways of being that may be causing you distress, preventing you from moving forward or causing difficulty and challenges. 

It may be that life feels generally overwhelming, you may have specific goals, or you may be impacted by something that feels too big to tackle alone.

I have experience with a wide range of issues and client experiences. I specialise in working with individuals who have a neurological condition or chronic health condition and their family members. For example, you may be coming to terms with the impact of a stroke, you may be experiencing the difficulties of living with Long Covid or CFS or you may have a diagnosis of Autism or ADHD. 

It might be that none of the above apply but you are experiencing anxiety, depression or it may be that you are struggling to accept something that has happened. We can work together to help make sense of things and work through them.

I am also qualified to deliver CBTi which is CBT for insomnia. 

Practice description

We can meet either weekly or fortnightly for a 60-minute session, which will be either on the telephone or online via zoom.
