About me and my therapy practice

When we feel overwhelmed and unable to see the wood for the trees, we can quickly find ourselves unable to cope with work or daily life. Sometimes all that is needed is an opportunity to explore the roots of our problems in a safe, compassionate and non-judgemental environment with someone who will work with us to help us discover insights and get clarity.

 If you are feeling lost, overwhelmed by the stresses in life, not feeling yourself anymore these issues and anxiety related issues such as rumination, worry, relationship issues, work issues,overthinking, depression single traumas and the grief surrounding loss are all problems that can often be alleviated through counselling or therapy in order to help bring about and maintain lasting changes to improve your well-being.
