About me and my therapy practice

Sometimes life, family or work related pressures, traumatic events, loss, or debilitating anxiety or depression become overwhelming. This is often when we stop being who we want to be, stop living life the way we want to live and sometimes we need some help to get ourselves back on track.

I provide counselling help and support to individuals; a confidential, safe place to talk, a space to 'be', to explore your thoughts and emotional reactions to events - past and present. Counselling provides an opportunity to find peace, or perhaps clarity, to understand and potentially make sense of hard to handle feelings such as sadness, guilt, shame, anger or vulnerability, feelings that may be dominating - and find a way forward.

I am the owner of an established Private Practice, The Good Therapy Works. Here I offer a range of therapies and treatments to support mental and physical wellbeing.

As a professionally qualified counsellor I'm here to listen and hear your story, from your perspective; here to support you and also offer techniques which could help you manage some of the debilitating effects of anxiety and depression. My approach has its foundations in humanistic and existential philosophies, its proactive and dynamic, blended to meet your needs. You and your life events are what makes you unique so each session holds you and our therapeutic relationship at its core, supporting your self-discovery to help find a place from which you can grow and change.
