About me and my therapy practice

Are you struggling to cope and need some help?

Perhaps you want to manage stress better or feel less anxious or understand the unhelpful behaviours that you are struggling to change. In my practice I offer you a warm, non judgmental space to talk in a way that you cannot often do with family and friends, a space where you can explore your difficulties and make the changes you want - appointments are usually available within a few days. 

My background is in psychodynamic therapy which lends itself to exploring beyond presenting problems to possible underlying causes.  My counselling approach is integrative, this flexible approach combines different therapeutic tools to fit the needs of the individual client - although often it is the relationship with the therapist that offers the potential for change. I can provide short term or longer term counselling, together we can discuss the option that suits your individual needs.   My practice has free onsite parking, it is wheelchair accessible and there is a public transport bus stop close by.

Experience:

I have 17 years of experience and professional training on a wide range of issues.  I have a Masters degree in counselling and psychotherapy practice and have worked in a variety of settings, private practice, further education, substance misuse and alcohol agencies, employee assistance programs and charities, gaining valuable knowledge in each. I have considerable experience in working with depression, anxiety and stress. My specialist area is working therapeutically with clients affected by alcohol and substance misuse, I also provide agency supervision in this field.

I will be happy to answer any further questions you may have - please feel free to contact me by email or telephone.

I also offer clinical supervision to other counsellors who are welcome to contact me for more details.
