About me and my therapy practice

Every client is unique, no two people or their experiences are the same.  Therefore, I work with my clients using an integrative approach which enables me to adapt the sessions to best suit your needs and to give you the best possible outcome. 

Practice description

Do you go through everyday life just wishing you felt better than you do? Life is a struggle at times and we can become completely overwhelmed by challenges that are thrown at us when we least expect it! Sometimes we are able to brush our problems aside and carry on enjoying life but at others we can become totally consumed about what it is that we are worried about. Perhaps you are feeling anxious or depressed about certain life events or maybe you don't even know why you are feeling this way!  Perhaps you are feeling betrayed, angry or lonely and until now have not been ready to make that first step to make positive changes.

I have always been passionate about psychology and although I can help with many different forms of mental health issues I do have a special interest in general anxiety, health anxiety, OCD, addictions and infidelity. My approach to clients is calm and caring to make sure you feel relaxed and listened to.  

I am here to offer professional support to you whereby you will never be judged. Together we will build a professional relationship and work to find a way forward so that life can become enjoyable for you once again. 

My first session

Making that first step towards counselling can be quite daunting, therefore I offer a free, no obligation 30 minute telephone consultation so that we can discuss your needs and so that I can answer any questions that you may have about therapy.
