About me

With over 20 years of complimentary therapeutic counselling experience, I have been able to provide help and support to stressed adults in the community enabling them to improve the quality of their lives, by airing issues that have arisen for them in their working and personal lives. During this time, I have also supported couples with a view to helping them  to understand ways of reviewing and revitalising their relationships

I have experience of working as a qualified social worker in a variety of settings in both the public and private sector.  This has consisted of supporting young people who have been fostered as a result of child protection issues

My approach is face to face client centred therapy, using a variety of therapeutic skills.  My main focus of work is working with individuals and couples within a framework of Solution Focus Brief Therapy and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and where appropriate offering tuition in Relaxation and Stress Management, which I believe can be of additional benefit when offering therapy.

I provide a welcoming relaxed environment to help you feel comfortable.  It is a chance to talk to someone about things in your life that don't make sense or that make you feel unhappy, sad or angry - 'talking' can help to understand things better and help you to feel more confident about your life
