Hi, Counselling is a very personal process and so it is important that you feel comfortable with the counsellor you choose. I offer help with anxiety, depression, work stress and relationship problems, as well as abuse, PTSD, and other life issue that arise. The combination of talking therapy with relaxation therapy has been found effective and helpful and can mean less session.
I work with individuals, couples and young adults from age 16yrs.
Talking through difficult life events such as loss, relationship problems and many other issues with a counsellor can help with sleep issues and alliviate stress related symptoms and allows you to come to a new perspective and can resolve the problem you are struggling with.
- To contact me for an informal short chat contact me on the above numbers or send me an email -
I worked in this field for over twenty years, both in the voluntary sector of Mind, Cruse and private practice and bring a wealth of life experience as well as years of training. I have found that past life events and relationship have a strong influence on who we are today.
I am accredited with the British Association of Counselling and work to their ethical framework; providing a comfortable setting in which you can explore your thoughts and worries and have time to think and be. I look forward to hearing from you.
I aim to return your call the same day, please let me know a good time to call back.
