About me

I am a BACP senior accredited counsellor, clinical supervisor and clinical hypnotherapist.

Are you battling with anxiety, struggling with depression or wanting to make positive changes to your life but don't know where to start?

I have a passion and commitment to helping people reach their potential through 'talking therapies'. You are  unique and so choosing to work with me means we will tailor your therapy to your individual needs which could include using the person centred model for personal growth and self understanding along with NLP to help identify unhelpful thinking and behaviour patterns. CBT could be useful for negative thoughts, anxiety and depression and hypnotherapy could help reduce stress and tension.

Whatever you want to change to improve your life your therapy will be bespoke to you personally.

Counselling offers a safe space to explore and experiment and reawaken the real you.
