I am a friendly, gentle and experienced counselor dealing with Anxiety, GAD (General Anxiety Disorder), Depression and relationship difficulties (couples/adults/children) together with OCD.. I have worked for some years in a charity and at school as well as privately. I also counsel people with Bi-polar and personality disorders, IBS as well as providing spiritual counselling.
Sometimes we don't know why we feel the way we do and talking to a counsellor can help you to explore these feelings and work out a way through even when things may appear hopeless.
I offer a supportive, non-judgmental and friendly face to face environment using a variety of therapies including CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) person centered counselling, relaxation techniques, mindfulness, lifestyle choices, play, online counselling and art therapy.
In addition, If you are nervous of coming to see a counsellor or your condition prevents you travelling, I am also able to offer a variety of alternatives. I am a trained Online Counsellor and counsel using either face to face, Skype, telephone or messaging if you are shy or nervous. I also offer home visits which is slightly more expensive to cover time and travel.
