About me and my therapy practice

As a professional Psychotherapeutic Counsellor I have a wide range of experience in helping people cope in difficult times and to improve their lives. I offer empathetic help and systematic support with anxiety, trauma, depression and relationships.

I provide long and short term face-to-face counselling and therapy, online (Skype) and telephone counselling.

The work done through counselling and psychotherapy aims to develop emotional health in the person - that includes setting healthier targets in life. It allows you to voice your inner pain and heal it. 

It helps to recognise emotions in yourself, and in others, to alleviate anxiety and cope with stress. For some, that would be the very first time in their lives that they have allowed themselves to be real, without pretense.

Being in therapy means entering unfamiliar territory. Because even if you have been in therapy before, the experience will have been different. And it will be different with every new therapist and at any other point in your life. Every time you will get something new from it. My aim as a therapist is to help you to recognise a burden that you carry and make it lighter, and in future to drop some of that burden and develop the ability to "travel light".

Counselling and psychotherapy are unique experiences which equip you with "tools" that you carry within yourself and you can use independently, long after you've finished your course of therapy. You learn to love, respect and nurture yourself. You become more harmoniously attuned to others and able to build and maintain healthier, stronger relationships.
