Sometimes, friends and family are not enough. Sometimes you and your partner seem not to be able to resolve your relationship issues on your own. Maybe the anxiety (or generalised anxiety disorder), depression, worry and fear are too frightening or embarrassing, run too deeply, or the impact on those close to you just unknown.
If you want to talk about what is happening in your life, I can provide you with that space. To be yourself, speak out those unspoken thoughts, put words to those feelings, we can walk together into your dark places.
I provide short and longer-term counselling and psychotherapy to support you in whatever way you need. I am experienced in working with individuals and couples through many difficulties.
You only need give me a ring or email me, to make contact and start to settle your worry.
I am a qualified, registered and accredited with the BACP as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I have a First Class Honours bachelors degree from the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute, Nottingham.
