About me

Welcome ... I am an experienced counselor with an in depth and broad knowledge which i don't let get in the way of a genuine and normal relationship and being fully involved in our work together. I'm all about lasting change and never forgetting what it was like when I couldn't find my own answers, I'll work with you, to help you get to be where you what to be, as soon as possible.
We'll work together to highlight any patterns of thinking , belief and behaviour which leave you stuck in difficult feelings or unable to move forward and the links to current and past relationships. Then with new awareness, we can explore new possibilities and ways of being , leaving you free, to make new choices, cope and live healthily.

I offer short and long term help and working at your pace and with you always in control of what we do and share you can decide what's right for you and your life.

I know making the call can be really difficult but I believe you'll be pleasantly reassured and no longer have to cope alone.

I see every week how what seems impossible becomes someone's new reality!

What to expect

..... I will work with you in ways that mean you can find your answers, develop how you wish and what is right for your life and create your own brand of who you are.

The areas i regularly help with are:

  • Deep seated lack of confidence, shyness, passivity or not being able to say “no”
  • Relationship issues
  • Self - comforting obsessive behaviors: EG: Emotional eating, excessive sex, work or physical activity, rigid routines…
  • Disturbing:images, flashbacks or memories
  • Physical ills, such as: headaches and stomach problems with no medical diagnosis.
  • Shame - Those who have a secret of: physical, sexual or emotional childhood abuse
  • Bipolar or Asperger syndrome.
  • Childhood issues from the past.
  • Abuse – Physical, emotional or sexual
  • Depression and Anxiety
  • Sexual anxiety
  • Post- traumatic stress
  • Feeling like you don’t belong, living behind a mask, on the edge of their life and feeling, not good enough.
  • Struggling with loss or change and wondering, what’s the point?
  • Stuck between a rock and a hard place, with no possible answer
  • Angry behaviors which hurt yourself and others
  • Those who struggle to find a purpose

I know how difficult even just asking for help can be and therefore I'm always happy to hear how i might help before we meet, as i think you'll be pleasantly reassured. So your welcome to call me today and without any obligation.
