About me

If you are in a crisis or experiencing a long term problem, let me help you. Whether your issues continue to repeat themselves or you are in a panic these day, try counselling to feel better. You will be treated with respect and confidential and in a safe environment with a trustworthy professional.

My firs goal is to provide you with the assurance you need to feel comfortable discussing and exploring the concerns and difficulties you have. Most importantly, I want you to feel safe enough explore the issues concerning you. I have a varied and extended history in the health field and have worked in numerous settings, including the NHS, with all ages, backgrounds and abilities. I have worked with mental health issues and those with physical disabilities.

I can offer life coaching to help you deal with an immediate crisis or cope with an ongoing stress or problem. Or we can work unraveling repetitive issues, loss, depression or anxiety while seeking to get to the core of what is going on. Or you may discover you want to first manage an immediate concern and then resolve long standing implications.

I offer a low fee first session for me to get an assessment, for us to discuss what for of counselling would work for you and and for you to ask any questions you may have.

Further information

I have experience in providing brief and long term counselling. I have experience with life changing illnesses, disabilities and grief and depression.

About me: The techniques I lean towards vary accordingly. For the short term processes I sometimes use a blended version of Cognitive Behavioural and Compassion Focused Techniques but for the open ended therapy I usually lean towards a more Systemic/Psychodynamic or Client Centred approach.

I'd like to say I have a Mindful Practise however I often find myself engaging with clients in such a varied way as I aim to suit your needs, so most would say I have an Integrative Practise, which to me means a blend.

I am an American, mostly from New York, which may influence my style to be more direct and open, wjocj some people find refreshing. I think I am very flexible on how we work together as no two people respond the same way to therapy.
