About me

I am not going to tell you that counselling cures everything, it doesn't and never can! It does offer a space to stop and think about your life, how its working and the bits that aren't going so well. It's a place to be honest and real without being judged or thought badly of, where you can take the time to explore options, different perspectives and ways of being and thinking.

I work using a number of different tyoes of counselling, drawing on the theories, tools and techniques that I believe will be right for you. There is no one size fits all.

I have special interest and knowledge of working with anxiety and depression, as well as specialising in working with eating disorders and obesity as well as being a Master Practitioner in this area I am studying for a Masters in obesity care and management with LSBU. I also offer counselling for couples.

Before becoming a counsellor i worked in the telecoms/ internet industry as a senior manager so I understand what it's like to work in a highly pressured job with a complex set of demands being placed on you.

Counselling is effective only if you find the right counsellor for you, please feel free to give me a call if you think that I might be the right counsellor for you, if not i wish you all the best with your search, you will find someone who feels right for you.
