About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified counsellor who specailises in working with self esteem. I want to help you to turn off that critical voice and begin to truly value yourself.

Whatever your age, background ,ethnicity or experience we all have times when we seem trapped by our feelings of sadness, anger or fear. We feel  unable to have a sense of well being or happiness. I can help you begin to begin to have compassion for yourself and help you move forward .

I also work with young adults aged 16 to 18 .The teenage years of our life can be a very confusing and frightening time. You may feel very isolated within your family, at school or college. You may feel that the future is a very uncertain place and worry that you do not have the skills to navigate your way through. I can help you manage some of the feelings you are having and help you realise the skills you have and develop confidence. 

I have had a wide range of experience with people from many different backgrounds and helped them to feel more confident and able to cope. 

I have worked extensively with bereavement. Loss is something we all experience often in our lives.Grief is felt by us, not just when someone dies, but often in our lives. It  can occur at the end of our youth, when our children leave home ,when we realise we have not achieved our dreams. I can help you come to terms with many form of grief and loss.

I have helped many people deal with issue involving drugs and alcohol. We can use a number of things to help us to deal with difficult feelings. This can include drugs, alcohol, food, shopping and other thing that can then become  a bigger problem than the feelings themselves. I can help you to manage the feeling which lead to an addiction you are struggling with and then take steps to make changes that you want in your life.
