About me

I have over 25 years NHS experience of working in mental health, originally as a Mental Health Nurse and then as a Counsellor and Psychological therapist. As a qualified person-centred Integrative and also Gestalt therapist, I am able to offer personalised  therapy to match the needs of each individual person I work with.

At any age, or time in our lives, we can all be impacted upon by problems, some of which can affect our well-being. Sometimes the problem is clear and at other times it is difficult to make sense of what is troubling us.

At times people are affected by issues from their past or current problems, or maybe concerns about the future. It could be a combination of different things. Perhaps you are having difficulties with how you are relating with others, or feeling alone or struggling with self esteem or confidence issues. Maybe you are having difficulty with adjusting to some life changes or have suffered a personal loss. Sometimes, problems can lead to depression, anxiety or stress. Many struggles people experience can be similar, however, because we are all unique, different experiences can impact on us in a very personal way.

Alternatively, you may be looking for some time and support to reflect on your life. To work on some aspect of personal development, increasing your self-awareness and personal growth. Many people in a caring or helping role, be it professional or otherwise, can find having an independent confidential space a support to address managing their well-being.

How counselling therapy can help
If you would like to explore what maybe creating and maintaining your present difficulties, I am able to offer a confidential space where I can work alongside you as we consider together what is troubling you and to look for ways to assist you in moving forward, to reach a place where you can find some resolve to your difficulties and gain an increase in your sense of well-being.

What to expect in your first session.
At our initial meeting we would discuss what is concerning you and what you would hope from counselling. Then if you thought I was a suitable person for you to work with, we would make an initial contract for future sessions. If my way of working does not seem quite right for you, we can discuss this together and then consider what other resources or approaches might be most helpful to you. In this situation, there will be no cost for this meeting.
