IS LIFE GETTING TOO MUCH?
Have you felt unhappy recently or overwhelmed by life events? Perhaps you have suffered a loss, or feel anxious or uncertain about who you are or where life is taking you?
Beginning counselling can often be the first step towards valuing ourselves and prioritising our own needs. Often, this can feel unfamiliar and almost selfish. Frequently we spend so much time meeting the needs of other people in our lives that we can forget about our own needs. You are worth taking time over, and it is ok to not be ok.
Being able to talk to a counsellor like myself can help you gain a better understanding of yourself. I aim to provide a caring, non-judgemental place for you to look at what's important to you. I offer you honesty and respect, You are in control about what You talk about. Together we can explore what is troubling you, and get a different perspective on the issue.

I see individuals for both short and long term counselling and psychotherapy. This is entirely dependant on your goals and wishes. Sessions last 50 mins and are normally once per week to begin with. However we can make a plan that suits your needs at our first meeting. The cost per session is £40.
