About me

Hi, have you been thinking recently? It might be good to talk to someone other than my family or friends. some one I can be totally open and honest with, some one who isn't going to be judgemental, but genuinely support my thoughts feelings and emotions.
Are you anxious and seem to worry about pretty much every thing, the simplest of tasks seem the hardest too do, and nothing interests you for long.
You question yourself and ask, "why do I feel this way, where's it coming from ?" Do you know the answers already, may be through exploration you can find a way forward and ultimately cope better. 
Talking one to one may be all you require for now, but as you to explore thoughts and feelings you may like to try other techniques that work along side person centred, Integrative counselling will help you find a technique that is going to give you the best result for you.

  • Are you grieving for a relative or friend.
  • Feeling controlled in an unhappy relationship.
  • Suffered personal injury or loss that's changed the way you look and feel about yourself.
  • Do you think you may suffer with an eating disorder.
  • Trouble in the work place or at school coping with bullies.

    I offer a friendly and safe environment for you to explore all the questions, thoughts and feelings that at present you find hard to understand or cope with.
    I am a member of the BACP and work within their ethical frame work of being person centred, this means that you are in control of your journey. I am here to support you, whilst building a therapeutic relationship that's built on mutual trust.
    I offer short or long term counselling depending on your own personal needs.

    I attend supervision regularly and like to keep myself up to date with training courses, current practices and techniques.

If you'd like to ask any questions about my counselling service please email or phone I will always reply.
