We all have mental health, just like physical health and counselling can offer a space to nurture a healthier mind space. I have experience working with people of all ages from young people in a school setting, to vulnerable adults struggling with addiction.
You will be at the very centre of our work and I aim to offer a warm, nonjudgemental, professional place in which to work.I have experience of working with addiction, anxiety, depression, disordered eating, work performance issues and relationship challenges.
I am trained integratively, which means I can offer a variety of therapeutic approaches (including Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, and Psychotherapeutic Therapy).
I feel passionately finding the right therapist is really important, so I offer a free consultation session for you and I to explore if we are a good fit for each other. After initial contact by email or phone we can meet and discuss what areas of of your life you are struggling with, this enables you to contact other counsellors too and chose someone who feels right for you.. If you decide to work with me we will then find a weekly slot to begin working together.
