Hi there, I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist and offer a free 30 minute consultation. My approach is warm, confidential and non-judgmental. Modern life can get very tough and sometimes we can find that we don't have anybody to share our problems with. I cover a broad range of problems (please see my web site) but have special interest in the areas of depression, anxiety and relationships. I work with individuals & couples.
I feel passionate about therapy and that it can and does change people and their lives.
How I work
After an initial brief phone discussion we would arrange to meet for a free 30 minute consultation. Here you can talk about what has been happening for you and I will explain how I work and what psychotherapy and counselling involve. This initial meeting gives us both a chance to decide if we want to work together. I work Integratively (which means I use a various approaches) and choose the most suitable ones to fit your needs. If we decide to work together each session would be 50 minutes and initially once a week. In our time together we will explore your problems and how we can change old unhelpful ways of thinking, feeling and behaving. We can determine where these harmful patterns have come from. Many originate in childhood and with this knowledge we can find new ways of relating to the world.
