About me

The way we think and feel about ourselves, has a significant influence on  our confidence, our moods and how we deal with life. As a counsellor and psychotherapist, with 12 years experience, I have a particular interest in helping you to understand how unhelpful thoughts, and unconscious emotional processes, can keep you stuck, repeating negative behaviours, and leaving a shadow on everyday life, some, or all of the time.

​Whether as an individual, or couple, of any age, gender or sexuality, I will help you regulate, and manage difficult emotions as and when they arise.

​And what are the benefits?​

The therapeutic process will allow you to find new perspectives, on new and old problems, with an emphasis on understanding, over judgement. I will help you identify your patterns of behaviour, and to  understand the reasons you think about yourself, and experience others in a particular way. Therapy encourages  a fresh look, at old thought patterns.

​Important events and people in your life past and present will have shaped your self-confidence, or the lack of it, your behaviour, your thinking and how you feel about yourself. Understanding these complex personal issues will help you gain more confidence, a more balanced outlook, and a more positive attitude towards yourself and others. This will ultimately help you to shape your life and your relationships for the better.

If you decide to contact me, I will endeavour to offer understanding and support over a sustained period,  working with you to find a realistic and meaningful way forward.
