Do you find it difficult to let others know how you feel? Are you suffering in silence too embarrassed or afraid to let anyone know what is really going on in your life? I can help.
I am a registered therapist in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Psychodynamic Counselling. If you are experiencing anxiety, difficulty in relationships or just need to be heard and understood then I can help. I am experienced in working with a range of different clients and from diverse cultures or backgrounds.
How can counselling help?
If you are suffering from anxiety, panic attacks, depression or having problems with your relationships, counselling can help. I can help you understand your feelings, your thoughts and physical symptoms and we will work together to help you feel better. I offer weekly sessions where you will be treated with respect and empathy. I offer either time limited sessions or longer term help depending on what you need.
I will always respect the client's objectives and goals and choose an approach that is most appropriate.
What to expect in your first session?
Your first session will be an opportunity for you to let me know what you want to achieve from counselling. We will also get to know each other so that you can feel confident that we can work together.
