About me and my therapy practice
A very warm welcome to you and thank you for visiting my profile. Life can at times be challenging. Sometimes we have to ask for help and that's okay. Sadness, anxiety, a lack of confidence, difficulty with relationships, depression and many other issues can overwhelm us.
I work with the understanding that 'knowledge is power' and the more you understand what is happening to you; the less you fear what's happening to you. This then enables you to rebuild your life as a happier you, your way, by your rules.
My offer to you is an opportunity to reflect, grow and heal. It is a space where you can safely bring your feelings and difficulties without expectation or judgement.
Central to any relationship is the collaboration of the two involved. It is therefore very important that you feel comfortable with the counsellor you choose. I invite all potential clients for an initial consultation as a way to help you decide whether you feel I am the right person for you and whether I feel I can offer you what you need. You are welcome to come along to an initial session with no obligation to continue. I do not charge for this initial session.
Please contact me by email or give me a ring for a chat.
I am a Counsellor for a local trauma agency where I counsel clients from the age of 18+ who are victims of sexual trauma and to which I offer support with their recovery from abuse. I have undertaken specialist training in trauma and its impact on survivors no matter how long ago this may have happened.
I have volunteered for an Agency which supports the local community with their mental health needs. I have counselled adults who have come to counselling to help them understand and support them with their anxiety, depression and stress.
I am employed by a young peoples' agency where I support young people with issues surrounding abuse, self harm, suicide ideation, dissociation, difficulties with relationships and educational issues.
