I am a qualified, accredited counsellor offering one to one confidential counselling.
I am trained in several psychological therapies which I use in an integrative way to best suit your individual needs.
If you are having a tough time, struggling to resolve issues which are hindering you, or want to make changes and fulfil your potential, please contact me for a free introductory half hour session.
I am experienced at helping with:
- low self-esteem and self-confidence
- depression and anxiety
- difficulty in relationships including family conflict
- traumatic life experiences including illness, bereavement and loss
- being stuck in unhelpful patterns of behaviour or addiction
I practice from my consulting room in Avening, Gloucestershire (near Tetbury, Stroud, Cirencester and Nailsworth) and provide a non-judgemental, supportive space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings.
If you think you are interested in counselling, I am happy to arrange a consultation session - at no obligation - to discuss what you would like to achieve. If you feel you would like to continue with counselling after this, we can agree what is most appropriate for you.
I am an Accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and adhere to their code of practice and ethics. www.bacp.co.uk.
