Hello. I can help you find a way forward from what is troubling you. I've had many very grateful clients.
I am a fully trained person-centred counsellor with 22 years experience. I specialise in anxiety, relationship issues, bereavement, domestic violence, separation and divorce, physical and sexual abuse, depression, serious assault and post traumatic stress disorder, self-harming and addictions.
I can now see you in the Summer House in my garden. I am following the procedures recommended by the Government and BAC P. However WhatsApp is still available and it enables us to view one another. You may feel anxious, lonely and isolated. I can understand that and I am here to help. It's difficult struggling on your own. I am also happy to offer telephone if you prefer.
If you have tragically lost a loved one due to Covid -19, I can help you to grieve. If you are suffering the after effects of contracting the virus this situation can overwhelm you. The good news is as a trained counsellor, I can help you to find a new path out of your difficulties.
If your partner is being moody or abusive, it's important you seek help a.s.a.p. Many are drinking more and this can cause problems in relationships which need to be addressed.
My approach is person-centred and integrative, which means we work on whatever you bring to the sessions to enable you to move forward.
If you want freedom from fear that is immobilizing you or the memories that haunt you, I will give you strategies to overcome that sense of helplessness and help you sleep more soundly.
Are you worried about your child, because they are sad and tearful? Are they having sleepless nights or nightmares? Are they finding home-schooling difficult and resistant to settling down to their work or becoming very angry ? I can help them and you talk about what's bothering them and suggest ways of coping.
I was a Primary school teacher for many years and have three grown up sons, so I am aware of the joys and sorrows of family life.
Do you feel anxious most of the time?
Are you experiencing sleepless nights, or loss of appetite, lack of concentration or having flashbacks from a traumatic experience in the past? I can help you to get your life back together.
If you're losing self confidence, are walking on eggshells or being verbally or physically abused by your partner or a member of your family, you don't have to put up with it. You need help urgently. Why not give me a ring to talk things through and consider the next step.
Have you been betrayed by someone you loved and trusted and are devastated?
Do you long for someone who listens and understands and will help you regain your self confidence and believe in yourself again? A trained counsellor like me will help you to get back on track. I am a qualified in counselling couples. You can find a more rewarding way of communicating with each other with a facilitator who is trained.
Are you aware that you're not living up to your full potential at home or at work? Maybe you have come to a crossroads in life and have no idea which way to turn. I will enable to to make the right decision.
Has loss of work, or redundancy left you confused and reduced your self-confidence? If so, counselling will give you the opportunity to unpack those feelings and enable you to move forward.
We can meet outside in a comfortable, confidential area, where you can relax to talk about what is troubling you and be empowered to make decisions which will alter the situation. This will be in my Summer House with a screen and all Government regulations in place.
I offer short and long-term, face to face counselling according to the B.A.C.P code of ethics, of which I am a registered member.
Friends and family may want to help, but talking to a person who is trained and experienced but not involved, is the way forward.
Counselling will enable you to focus on the strengths that have helped you survive so far and discover resources that you were unaware of, which will lead to a more satisfactory way of living.
Together we can find a new pathway, so you can move from a difficult, dark place to a brighter and more fulfilling future.

Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
