I can offer time to think about what is causing you distress, with an aim of enjoying life more.
It may be a current situation, or something from the past that feels unresolved. Perhaps you feel stuck, anxious or stressed. Maybe there are difficult issues that you are dealing with in your relationship. I have been trained to listen at a deeper level, and to trace the patterns that may be repeating in your relationships and friendships. My approach will help you gain insight, and find new perspectives that will help you move forward in life.
Although I work with a broad range of personal problems, I have supported a large number of people with anger, anxiety, addiction and relationship issues.
I have also been able to help people with sexual difficulties.
OTHER PROBLEMS THAT I WORK WITH INCLUDE
Starting and maintaining relationships
Depression, low mood
Sexuality, sexual problems and sex addiction.
Loneliness and isolation
I have been practising since 2005, and I see individuals and couples for short term focused work or on an open ended basis. I offer early morning, day time and evening appointments. and also work with clients on Skype.
I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and a member of the College of Sex and Relationship Therapists (COSRT). Both organisations place an emphasis on maintaining ethical standards and the importance of maintaining confidentiality.
I am registered to take referrals from Aviva members.
