About me

I have 16 years experience helping people, just like you, to overcome difficulties and emotions which are causing distress. It's important that you know that you are not alone, the feelings and emotions you are experiencing now are manageable and I can show you how to overcome them and start enjoying life to the full again.

I work on the belief that your mind is your best tool, it's not your enemy. Even the most difficult situations, conditions and challenges can be managed or overcome. We all have the power to change our lives and our thought patterns, but sometimes we just need a helping hand to access that power and put these changes in place, and that is what counselling can offer you. It's a safe, confidential space for us to explore you as an individual and help you build a positive life you enjoy.

How I Work
As a counsellor, coach, supervisor, trainer of counsellors and business consultant, I will use a wide range of skills, tools and experience to help you make the progress you dream of in your life.

The approaches I use include: Neuro Linguistic Psychotherapy (NLP), Humanistic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Existentialism, Gestalt Therapy, Person Centred, Hypnotherapy, Mindfulness, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and Timelining.

What To Expect
We'll start with an initial session, which is normally face to face. This gives us the opportunity to meet each other, discuss your needs / wants and also gives you the chance to ask me any questions so you can see if I feel like the right counsellor for you.

After the initial session, if you want to continue counselling we will arrange follow up sessions at a time that suits you. I also offer breakthrough sessions for half a day or a full day if an immediate solution is needed.
