About me

There are times in life when you may feel that you don't have anyone to turn to. You perhaps feel that family or friends may judge you if you talk to them about your problems or express certain feelings. Talking to a Counsellor may help take this pressure away. You will be free to open up, in confidence, and express these feelings in a safe environment.

I offer my counselling services to adults, young people and children individually, as couples or families. I am a qualified experienced Integrative Counsellor offering you a warm, friendly service, supporting each person's individual needs working with a variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship, anger, self-harm, self-esteem and work related issues.

I can offer you an empathic, non-judgemental service in a safe environment where we can work together allowing you to talk and express yourself freely through a variety of tools and theoretical models.

The approaches I use are: Person Centred, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic, Transactional Analysis (TA), Gestalt, Brief Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy (SFT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP).

I offer brief therapy (6 sessions), medium term therapy (10-20 sessions) and long term therapy.

Appointments can be made Monday to Sunday daytime and evenings to fit around your work schedule.

Sessions are held in Whitehaven.
