About me

Life can sometimes deal us some difficult hands; depression, anxiety (including generalised anxiety disorder/GAD), low self esteem, relationship issues, addiction, self harm, workplace stress, illness and life transitions such as redundancy or retirement plus many more. It can be difficult to know where to turn when we are faced with these issues which is why talking to someone who is trained to help can be helpful.

My aim is to work collaboratively with you so that we can determine what the issues are and how they can be addressed.

I can help you to explore and to express how you are feeling. Sometimes just this process can be highly effective. Often it is useful to explore how past experiences have shaped how we are today. Other times I may use cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to help address self limiting or thought patterns or ways of behaving which are doing damage.

I am a BACP accredited counsellor qualified since 2005.  I am happy to work either open ended (as many sessions as you feel you would like) of more short term if you prefer. I offer face to face counselling with adults over 17 years of age. Please see my main web site for further details.

I specialise in working with depression and anxiety, addiction, anger and working with the highly sensitive person (HSP).
