About me and my therapy practiceAre you experiencing difficulties in your life and would like to work through them by talking to someone confidentially? Get in touch- I believe that you have the strength and the ability to make positive changes to your life.
Practice descriptionI am a qualified/registered psychodynamic counsellor/therapist offering support to individuals and couples struggling with various issues. I have 16 years of experience as a counsellor and offer short term and open ended counselling. Within my practice, when appropriate, I combine Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques and approaches, particularly useful in dealing with certain issues like phobias or fears. Over the years, I have been amazed at people's power and their strengths and commitment to overcome any difficulties. I believe that each individual has got the capacity to change and improve their life and I always welcome the opportunity, through counselling, to support them to do that. I have worked in the mental health and disabilities fields for over 20 years now and have full knowledge and understanding of the difficulties people face when they experience challenges in their lives, both from the point of view of those living with mental health issues and those who have experienced episodes of ill mental health due to changes in circumstances or life events. Over the years, I have supported people who were depressed and anxious, people who have felt unable to cope, individuals and couples who have experienced relationship issues, loss, crisis, other major life changing events, like redundancy/job loss, those with addictions and eating disorders. I have also worked with people who want to use the counselling for individual growth and development. I run my practice Monday to Saturday and can be flexible around the appointment times and offer daytime and evening appointments too. I offer both short term and open ended counselling to individuals and couples.
