About me

I hope to provide the information you need to encourage you to embark on a course of counselling which will enrich your life and reach more of your potential. I offer you a professional, confidential and non-judgemental service based on over twenty years of experience in counselling.

What Counselling provides
Counselling and therapy essentially provides the person with a very specific and special space to explore the problems which have led to the need to seek help. The cornerstone of all psychotherapy is the non-judgemental attentive listening which the therapist has developed through training and experience of patterns of human behaviour.

In our busy lives it can become increasingly difficult to give ourselves enough reflective space to support our connection with our deeper sense of how best to develop our most effective self expression.

When we lose connection with ourselves, anxiety, depression and a sense of dissatisfaction arises.
Counselling addresses the inner imbalances and often restores a sense of well-being and confidence in the future.

What kind of Therapy do I offer?
I work on an individual basis with an integrated approach. This means that I draw from many different theoretical paradigms, being influenced by the unique needs of each client. I work on a long or short term basis, again according to the presenting problem outlined.
I also offer EMDR therapy.

What kind of Issues?
Throughout all of our lives we face challenges, joys and sadnesses, but sometimes something blocks our forward progress. These blockages can be encountered suddenly and cause very acute pain and anxiety. Issues commonly creating stress and generalised anxiety include:
Childhood traumas
Sexual Identity
Spiritual Identity
Bereavement and loss of any kind
These are just a few of the issues I work with as the list is myriad as even the smallest of changes can upset our inner balances. Counselling can help to unlock the door to new possibility.
