I can help you learn ways to cope with and overcome a range of difficult emotions, including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, anger and stress, and manage your thoughts and moods in a more productive way to lead to a healthier mental environment with a greater sense of self worth and confidence in who you are.
I provide a safe and non judgmental environment for you to talk through things in a way where you will not be judged, but valued on the person you are and difficulties you are going through, offering a free 30 minute introductory session to make sure you are comfortable with how I work.
I am continually expanding my knowledge so as to provide the best service possible to anyone I work with working from a purpose built studio in my garden, which is easily accessible and I provide off street parking.

I believe we all hold the answers to our problems, we either don't know it yet or don't know where to look because our mind is clouded by so many other things. I use an integrated approach to tailor the therapy to you in ways to help you specifically. This includes CBT, exploring your thought processes and working on ways to change negative patterns into positive ones. I use inner child methods to explore emotional pain and help bring an understanding that can empower you to make positive changes, and Solution focused therapy which can help you to focus on a brighter future and set goals which are reachable and empower you through your own progress.
I believe a mixture of these approaches are very useful for a wide range of problems we face, and always provide a safe environment where you will feel valued and at ease to talk about the various problems you may be finding troublesome.
I have found these techniques work exceptionally with issues of low self esteem, low moods/depression, relating to others, negative thought patterns, recovering from abusive pasts, anxiety disorders, relationship issues, intimacy and other issues, and have had many successful outcomes during over 10 years of face to face counselling work.
