About me and my therapy practice

You may be considering counselling to address family issues, problems in relationships or unresolved issues from your past. Without support life can be overwhelming, stressful and confusing, leading to anxiety or depression. Seeking support through counselling is a significant step forward to work through your issues for a more promising future.

​Counselling works! I know this from experiencing it from both sides, as client and counsellor.

However experience has taught me that therapy isn't a one size fits all thing, we are all different, with our own unique story.

​That is why I choose to work in a way that respects these differences offering you a safe, non-judgemental space to share your story and what brings you to counselling. We'll then work together to determine the goals of your therapy, using my experience and what we learn we will find a way forward that suits you as an individual

Practice description

Therapy is sometimes overly passive; I work in an adaptive, hands-on way, with a focus on the here and now. I will encourage and question in order to uncover new possibilities and ways of thinking. 

This may mean challenging limiting beliefs and behaviours, considering your relationships or evaluating things from a different perspective.

Together we can find a positive way forward.

​This can start with a half-price introductory session, please email me for more details.
