Searching for a counsellor at a time when you may already be struggling to cope can seem overwhelming. But in finding the ‘Counselling Directory’ you have already begun to take steps towards improving your emotional well-being and moving towards a better place.
Everyone has times in their lives when they struggle; many of us feel that we cannot admit this to others, and often we may even have difficulty admitting it to ourselves.
Acknowledging that you need help or support does not mean that you are weak, or self-indulgent, it means that you are ready to make changes and begin to take control of your life.
Counselling involves talking with a person like myself, who is trained to help you explore your difficulties or distress in a safe way. I will not tell you what you should or should not do, rather we will work together to enable you to gain insight, and a greater understanding of what motivates your patterns of behaviour, ways of relating to others and negative emotions.
I see both individuals and couples.
I aim to provide a welcoming, confidential and safe environment and to build a professional relationship in which I hope you will feel supported , valued and understood.
I am an accredited member of the National counselling Society and abide by their code of Ethical framework for good practice at all times.
As a practitioner , I offer a flexible approach incorporating several models of counselling including humanistic, solution focused and CBT. Together we can discover what works best for you, and build a relationship, within which we can explore your difficulties together.
I have both day time and evening appointments.
I offer short- and long-term counselling for a range of issues including
Stress and anxiety
Depression and post natal depression

Cancer and its treatment
Lack of self esteem/ confidence
My case load is supervised and I carry professional indemnity insurance
