About me

I am an experienced, qualified Counselling Psychotherapist working with both adults and young people.

What’s so different about me?

  • look at the underlying causes and not just the presenting issues. This is because issues such as depression, anxiety, alcohol addiction, eating disorders, relationship problems, complex post-traumatic stress disorder etc, are the result of what has happened to you in the past and your current beliefs.

  • I work Holistically, looking at everything that affects you. This would be how you think and feel, your self-worth, your health, your surroundings and the people in your life etc. For example, when your health or nutrition is poor it affects how you feel about yourself. It could make you feel depressed, affecting your self-esteem.

  • I also work Integratively where I believe that the answers to life's challenges cannot be found in just one area. I am an Associate of the Reach Approach where we incorporate a range of psychological and counselling approaches, philosophies and scientific research.

  • I will work through a process that is right for you then end by supporting you with tools for your life. This will help you to best cope and manage life beyond the presenting concerns.

    You don't need to be alone in your situation. I can help you find yourself again. To get to the real you. Having struggled myself for with a lot of issues in my past, I understand that getting the life you desire is possible. When you come to Fresh Springs Counselling & Psychotherapy Services, Sutton Coldfield, you will be treated:

    With respect - In confidence - As a person - With care - With kindness
