About me and my therapy practice

I believe our childhood experiences form who we are in our adult relationships, carrying traumas and other adverse experiences that can manifest themselves as psychological and physiological problem, unpleasant feelings are buried, they are buried alive and want to get out, this often results in anxiety, depression, mental and physical illness, the internalised voices become overwhelming. Counselling is an opportunity to address these feelings and to sit with these emotions.

I know counselling can help because I have seen many individuals break the cycle. You can too.

Every relationship in life is unique and that includes every counsellor/client relationship. If you are on this website then you are looking for someone to help facilitate change.

I believe you have the answers within, my role as counsellor is to help you find your genuine self, for you to gain control over your life and gain assertiveness, meaning you can make decisions that get your needs met, these are the changes that last.

I do not believe the counsellor role should be one that is authoritarian or directive, this is your journey. I will be with you as we explore the past, present and future, in a safe place, where you will not be judged.

£50 per 50 minute session.

£70 per 90 minute session.
