About me

My experience has been formed spanning 40 years in the caring sector with nurse medical background, rigorous training, much Continual Professional Development, my own batch of life experiences and listening to the numerous accounts of others. Following injury and subsequent surgery, I left the field of nursing.   My recovery was benefited from Counselling and Life coaching & Trauma Therapy.

I wanted to continue working with people, attaining many other useful qualifications, and incorporating the various additional skills and techniques into my practices.  I can therefore offer a range of Counselling & Psychotherapy and Therapy services, in a Comfortable, Supportive, Confidential environment.

I use an Integrative, Confidential, Non-judgmental approach, assisting you to overcome the obstacles preventing you from leading a fulfilling, contented happy life. I can help you with numerous issues, including stress, anxiety and depression, all sorts of relationship issues and much else.

It can be good to talk to someone not directly involved in your life, helping you see things more clearly, make sense of them and often form different perspectives.  This can be most self-empowering for you.  My passion is to help clarify those aspects that cause distress, confusion or anger, that lead you to feel stuck, and desperate.  Exploring our options and choices helps come to terms with issues, enabling handling life’s challenges with renewed confidence.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

EMDR Trauma Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing)

EMDR Therapy works on the premise that the mind can often heal itself naturally, in the same way as the body does.  Much of this natural coping mechanism occurs during sleep, particularly during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. In the hands of an experienced practitioner this natural process may be utilised, watching a bar of lights, and using only, your own body and minds natural processes.   It has been used to successfully treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Since then EMDR is being used effectively to treat a wide range of mental health problems such as:

  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Anxiety and panic attacks
  • Depression
  • Low self-esteem
  • Stress
  • Phobias
  • Sleep problems
  • Complicated grief
  • Pain relief
  • Accidents, injuries, abuse, rape, childhood neglect, post legal cases, fears
  • Self-esteem and performance anxiety
  • Difficult memories, nightmares, flashbacks, panic attacks
  • And much else....

EMDR is an innovative clinical treatment which has been found to successfully of helped well over a million individuals. The validity and reliability of EMDR has been established by rigorous research and there are numerous control studies into EMDR, making it the most thoroughly researched method used in the treatment of trauma, and is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) and the World Health organisation (WHO) as one of the first lines of effective treatment for PTSD.

I can also offer you help for issues such as:

  • Health anxiety
  • Social anxiety
  • Performance anxiety
  • Public speaking anxiety
  • Feeling sad or rejection
  • Life changes / transitions
  • Feeling lost, depleted, numb, overwhelmed

And much else.....

Feel free to contact me to enquire if you have any other worries / concerns / issues, which are not listed, that you would like me to address.   I know you may feel apprehensive but that is natural and okay. This is the probably the hardest step, and it’s brave of you to do...

Many people feel an immediate sense of relief in that finally, they can speak to somebody in a safe supportive, non-judgemental, and confidential environment.   No issue you choose to bring to therapy is too small or too large for us to address, and perhaps surprisingly, invariably a number of others may well have presented with similar things. We all have our own set of unique worries and concerns and fears, so email me or pick up your phone....
