Hello and welcome .
Do you have a feeling that things in life are not going well , not quite right at the moment and you find it difficult to share /expose this to friends or family ?. Are you feeling anxious or depressed about something?
Getting in touch with me will be a good place to start on your road to recovery/self discovery and together we can work towards peace of mind. My aim will be to help you get the best out of your life .
I have the experience and ability to help with a wide range of issues including anxiety and depression . I also specialise in bereavement counselling and understand the feelings that loss can bring.
I provide a calm, comfortable, safe space for you and will help you explore your feelings and guide you on your journey to reach your goals and find ways to manage what you are experiencing.
I am a Humanistic Counsellor specialising in Person Centred/ Eclectic /Integrative Counselling Therapy. I provide a safe haven for my clients to explore their lives and situations in complete confidentiality.
All you will need to do is contact me to have a brief conversation about what it is you would like to achieve from counselling and then we can set a date and time.
I am also aware that some people may find it difficult or stressful to leave the privacy of their own homes to see me therefore I have also set up an online counselling service.
Please look at my website for more details about this.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a European Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
For 16 years I have had my own private practice. I have also facilitated groups in self empowerment /self awareness and self discovery . I have guided people on their journey to reach peace of mind and equilibrium/ balance.
I have also worked as a lecturer / tutor of Counselling and Psychotherapy at a local college for many years which I enjoyed being a part of. I believe that students training to be counsellors themselves can benefit immensely from sessions with me because of this.
I am also a qualified bereavement counsellor and understand what loss can bring.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
I am providing an online service specifically for people who find it difficult to leave the comfort of their own home. I am aware that someone, for instance, suffering with agoraphobia would find this a beneficial outlet. People who find it difficult to get about due to physical disability /wheelchair access etc may also find the "Skype" way a great asset.
I am also aware that cross dressers /transvestites who want to "dress " for their counselling sessions may feel more comfortable from the safety of their own homes / private spaces therefore Skype could be invaluable.
