About me

I offer counselling to people who are going through stressful times, helping them develop renewed confidence in themselves and a deeper sense of meaning in their life.

Are work, family or other relationships troubling you? Perhaps you are feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or can’t see the woods for the trees? Or suffering with symptoms like anxiety, depression, phobias or panic attacks?

We would start a conversation about what’s troubling you and explore your current situation, as well as your past. In the process, you will become more aware of your feelings, what matters to you, and the ways you’ve learned to protect yourself.

You will see your situation in a new light, start to change how you feel and be able to get back on with your life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I had counselling myself when I was in my 30’s, and it really helped me. This inspired me later to retrain as a therapist and after five years’ study, I gained clinical experience and a Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Psychodynamic Counselling from a highly regarded training centre for psychotherapists, Metanoia Institute in London. I am a Registered Member of the BACP.

Free telephone consultation: I don’t charge for an initial telephone consultation as this can help you decide how you feel about working with me.
