Hi I specialise in helping clients with anxiety and depression. I'm also passionate about helping both couples and individuals with relationship issues.
There are many reasons for seeking therapy. Do you feel unhappy, confused, low in confidence or self esteem ? Do you have relationship issues, anxiety or ocd or maybe you have suffered from bereavement or loss? Does this impact on your day to day life and relationships ?
My role is to offer you confidential sessions where you feel comfortable to talk to me about anything, whether its your current situation that is troubling you or something that happened in the past.
My style of Counselling is to work collaboratively using encouragement, gentle challenging with a strong sense of respect and autonomy. I believe we all have the ability to find the answers for ourselves, sometimes we just need a little help getting there.
By listening and paying close attention to what you are saying I gain insight into your world, together we unravel any confused thought, feelings and beliefs helping you develop a greater understanding of yourself, your life and your relationships, empowering you to take control over your future.
