I want to assure you of confidentiality and respect in a safe space where you can feel secure enough to get the support you need, feel better and/or work through difficulties. If you are suffering from anxiety or depression, have relationship difficulties, have suffered childhood abuse, bullying or neglect please give me a call. If you are finding it difficult to cope with a loved one or at work, let me help you find ways to cope. If you want to better understand yourself or a situation you are in, we can explore this as well. If you have been diagnosed with a learning disability or other disability are are struggling, let me help.
I have a varied and extended history as a counsellor and have worked in numerous settings, including the NHS, with all ages, backgrounds and abilities. I have worked with mental health such as relationship difficulties, depression and anxiety, childhood abuse, bullying, addiction and coping difficulties. I received an MSc in Counselling from the University of Bristol and I am currently sitting for my MSc in Psychology.
I can appreciate that many things are difficult to speak about or even understand in our lives. Please be assured that you will have the time to explore whatever you feel comfortable with at a pace that suits you. My approach is non-judgemental and compassionate. I consider myself to be thorough and well informed yet honest enough to know when I need to learn more about matters that may be helpful for you.
I am a mature counsellor with a life time of experiences which I hope can be of benefit to you.

I am experienced in providing brief and long term counselling. I have experience with life changing illnesses, disabilities, grief and depression.
I am from American originally, been living in the UK for over 12 years now. I will be completely honest. direct and open with you at all times. I think I am very flexible on how we work together as no two people respond the same way to therapy.
