Do you need to talk to somebody outside your family or friends who will listen without making a judgement, in a safe and confidential environment? Saying what’s on your mind isn’t always easy, talking about painful and difficult feelings can be hard. I provide a safe, non judgmental, confidential space where you will be listened to and truly heard.
I understand that asking for help can feel difficult. I am an experienced, qualified counsellor who can support you at a time when you feel overwhelmed, upset or anxious. If you are struggling to cope, feel low or depressed, or you simply need to talk to someone who can help you explore your thoughts and feelings, then why don't you contact me to see if I could be the right therapist for you.
I work from home, in a comfortable therapy room. Parking is available outside my house, Enfield Chase Station is a four minute walk, Enfield Town Station is a 10 minute walk.
