About me

I provide quick & easy access, to effective, confidential counselling

Most people who come to see me are not entirely sure what they want, and wonder if, or how counselling will help. I am a caring, empathic, humorous, warm and highly experienced therapist, which are some of the qualities I use to help you gain what you want.

You may feel you have lost something, and you want to gain acceptance, change, confidence, control, direction, meaning, progression, to feel as if you are coping, self-awareness, or understanding.

When you call, we will just arrange a time to meet, we will not need to go into personal issues, we can start in the first meeting.

I ensure:

  • You will be offered an appointment this week or next week
  • You undergo numerous assessments
  • There will be no unnecessary, tedious paperwork
  • You will get someone who has years of experience providing services for many different organisations
  • There is no obligation to continue therapy after your initial session.

People come to see me for all kinds of problems: abuse, anxiety (worrying, panic attacks, social phobia, nervous symptoms), avoiding, bereavement, drinking, family/relationship issues, trauma & unresolved childhood experience
