As a CBT counsellor I work with individuals and have a lot of experience working with young people. My aim is to provide a high quality, professional service that focuses on tailoring my approach to your individual needs to ensure you or your child get the most from therapy. My professional training and life experience mean I can offer an impartial ear and the ability to examine issues from a fresh angle in a safe, non-judgemental environment.
There are times when we can find life challenging: we may feel overwhelmed, anxious, depressed or stuck in repeating patterns of negative behaviours. These challenges can block the way we live our lives and limit our true potential.
I will work with you or your child to explore thoughts, feelings and sensations to give a greater understanding of the situation so that realistic goals can be made in order to move forward in a positive manner.
I would be happy to talk to you on the telephone prior to counselling to answer any questions you might have.
