I realise that making the decision to come to counselling can be a difficult one, it may have been on your mind for sometime and eventually an event, a situation or living with low mood or distress leads you to seriously consider this option. We can live in a more comfortable way with ourselves and so with the world around us.
After many years of involvement with counselling and through my work within mental health I greatly value the opportunity to change and healing it can offer.
I work with and alongside people as they explore, recognise and understand the difficulties in their lives. I work in an integrated way, fitting the therapy to the individuals unique needs. My work is lead by what you bring.
I provide a warm, professional and holding relationship for the client and as a (registered) member of the BACP I support and work to their ethical standards.
I have worked with a wide range of issues, including anxiety, depression, sudden inability to work, relationship issues, and health conditions. I work with adults of all ages from young adults to the elderly. I am available for as long as the work is needed, this can be short or long term. I have an interest in the interaction between mental and physical well being, I am also a member of the health care group within the BACP.
I also work with relatives of loved ones with serious emotional issues, here my expertise and work within the mental health field contributes to work we can do together.
My counselling room is comfortable with free parking near by. I have some evenings appointments subject to availability. There is disabled access.
