About me and my therapy practice

I am an integrative counsellor, combining different therapeutic approaches that enable me to tailor how we can work effectively, to suit your personal needs and circumstances.

I believe the counselling relationship is the most important aspect of therapy and that working collaboratively in a supportive and understanding environment will help you begin to gain further personal insight and build self-esteem. I will support you to better manage the stresses, difficulties, and decisions you are faced within your life.

Reaching out is the first step and together we can work towards the changes or goals that you want to make.

Practice description

Do you feel as if you are treading water or as if you might be pulled under? Are you struggling to cope with feelings of overwhelm or loss?

Counselling can feel like a lifeline, helping you to understand and explore what is important to you,  supporting you in communicating your needs and experiences to others better and helping you to set goals for a more hopeful future.

Whatever has brought you to talking therapy, I offer a safe, confidential, therapeutic space where we will work together, to explore the aspects of your life that are concerning you.
