About me

I am a Drug and Alcohol Recovery Specialist and a Behaviour Change Practitioner. I provide support for the management of anxiety, depression and PTSD conditions.

My role is to work with you in adjusting your behaviour, your relationships and yourself. Your role is to learn, process, apply and practice. Together theoretical and practical solutions can be explored.

Contact 07894914619 for appointments.   

  • Choosing which approach and which therapist or counsellor to engage with can be confusing and tricky at times there are so many alternatives available today.
  • I work with people who are stuck in problematic behaviour.
  • I help people to believe that change is possible, and to understand that they have the ability to change and together we create an opportunity to fulfil  aspirations.
  • My sessions are quite dynamic we try to move things on, with couples I utilise the well proven and researched approach of Behavioural Couples Therapy BCT, this approach is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence NICE, the body in the UK that sets the standards for healthcare provision.
  • The researched outcomes for BCT are well documented and show that the approach of reciprocated support is beneficial.
  • It's proven, it works and it's simple. Come and talk to me if you wish, or give me a call.

    Steve Earlam

I provide a safe therapeutic environment for individuals and couples in conflict who wish to work  in order to encourage positive resolutions to their conflicts.

I encourage clients to examine and develop new understandings of acceptable behaviour by dealing with defensiveness, conflict, controlling behaviour, cognitive dissonance and by improving listening and communication skills.

I engage with clients in a process of personal change that enables a cognitive restructuring of personal theories and assumptions.

I enable clients to identify what they think and feel is the right option for them.

I practice a multi-modal approach to working with clients which means that treatment can consist of techniques from different theoretical perspectives.

Clients have the opportunity of working on various aspects of their behaviour within the confines of one therapeutic centre.

I help clients to focus on the future without anger and conflict because they say that’s what they want.

I offer an assessment service for clients and will provide therapy reports to employers and courts when requested. (There is normally a charge for the preparation of reports).

I accept referrals from local authorities and criminal justice organisations and I can provide a therapeutic intervention tailored for couples who are engaged in a process of family reconstruction.

If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.
