About me and my therapy practice

Have you ever wondered what counselling would be like or whether it could help?Are you feeling stuck, sad or dissatisfied with life but don’t know why Maybe past issues are troubling you and you can’t seem to find a way forward.Perhaps you are facing new changes in life and are finding it hard to adjust.When you are struggling, Its easy to feel that life won't get any easier I believe that with the right help and support it can.

Counselling is different to talking to a friend or loved one;as a counsellor I will not try to tell you what to do or how to feel.There is no ongoing commitment,if it isn't for you then you are free to end your sessions at any time.Counselling can't change the things that have happened or are happening,but it can give you an outlet to talk about things and help make sense of your feelings.This can make a big difference to how you are feeling and coping in day to day life.My hope is that through our time together, you can gain a clearer understanding of yourself,your thoughts and things will start to feel easier for you.

I am fully trained and experienced in Person Centred Counselling which offers a supportive,non-judgemental approach which aims to help you find your own way and gain confidence in your own ability to decide what is right for you.As a registered member of the BACP,I am committed to working safely and ethically with my clients.If you've never had counselling before, you may have worries about what to expect.If you contact me by phone or email, I will tell you more about what I do.To help you decide if counselling is for you, I offer a free of charge,30-minute face to face consultation session which gives you an opportunity to meet me.
