About me and my therapy practice

Hello and thank you for visiting.

As a qualified counsellor since 2008, I've had the privilege of working with a very diverse client group, providing short and long term counselling and therapy.

Whatever is on your mind, talking and being heard can be powerfully and uniquely helpful.

I provide a space to talk openly about life; to explore what's working, what's not and whatever might be getting in the way.

Practice description

I am qualified in Transactional Analysis counselling - a Humanistic and Relational approach which emphasises client choice and autonomy. It can be a useful means of exploring how our past might be influencing the present and provides us with options to find insight and greater freedom from any adverse experiences which might be holding us back.

People often benefit from looking at why their relationships might be difficult, repetitive or unrewarding. Counselling is a safe space to explore our reality; our feelings and thoughts - and to identify behaviours that contribute to us feeling stuck in patterns which might feel unrewarding. Counselling can help us find constructive ways to understand these patterns and to move forward.

I also have experience of working within an IAPT service focusing on anxiety, depression and work and health related issues.

I have also worked within addiction treatment centres for over 10 years, offering both individual counselling and group work.

I work face to face and over the telephone, with a variety of issues including:

Addiction

Adult Child Issues (ACA/ACoA)

Anger Management

Anxiety

Childhood Trauma

Depression

Esteem

Family Estrangement and Separation

Health Issues such as chronic pain/fibromyalgia

High Sensitivity Issues (HSP)

Identity issues

Relationship difficulties

Spiritual Emergence

Work Related Issues - Employment/Redundancy/Unemployment
