If life is feeling too much for you and you are struggling to cope and find a way forward it can help to talk to a psychotherapist or counsellor who is trained to listen to you in an effective and non-judgmental way. I am an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor. I meet with clients in a private consulting room in my home in Uttoxeter, Staffordshire and at the Affinity Centre in the centre of Wilmslow.
I am an integrative psychotherapist and this means that I draw from several theories and techniques, allowing your individual needs to inform the way we work together. I aim to work in a way that helps you to understand why you are struggling, paying attention to the way relationships and events have impacted your life, while finding practical ways of dealing with the stress and problems.
Making an initial contact can be difficult. I am happy for you to telephone or email, whichever is easier, to discuss whether I can help you.
