There are times when we all need help with life's challenges. I can offer you a space to reflect and think in the hope that this will lead to better understanding, self-awareness and change.
We are all responsible for our own lives and I believe it is possible to move from feeling out of control, anxious, depressed and driven to repeat unhelpful or even destructive patterns in our relationships to a place of making choices.
My approach is integrative. I have 20 years experience in offering counselling and psychotherapy in private practice and have also worked for a number of organisations.
I also offer short courses in Mindfulness - a mind/body approach that helps us to relate differently to our experiences.
The NHS recommend Mindfulness as a way of managing anxiety and recurring depression. Anecdotally those practising say that they notice relationships improve and they are able to enjoy life and get more done.
I now offer individual meetings as well as short courses. 6 sessions is usually adequate to begin living mindfully but if you would like to arrange a taster before committing to 6 sessions this can be arranged.
Consultations available face to face, on the phone and using Skype.
