About me

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.

I understand that sometimes life can be hard and that you need a little help. I have great respect for anyone who can recognise they are struggling and decide to do something about it. I also know how hard that first phone call can be so I will do my best to put you at ease.I like to keep my landline private, but realise phoning a mobile can be expensive, so I'm happy for people to send me a text with a convient time and I will call to answer your enquires about my service.
