About me

Looking for a therapist is the first step in your healing process . . . it can also feel like the hardest part. Therapy is a real investment in yourself and takes courage - I am aware how difficult it is to choose from the growing number of counsellors on websites such as this, which is why I suggest we have an informal chat on the phone, at your convenience, together an idea of how I work before making a commitment.

I understand the pressures of everyday living, and know how feelings of depression, anxiety or worry can creep up on us, leaving us feeling overwhelmed. Sometimes there doesn't seem a way forward, and it can start to feel as if everything is against you. This is my area of expertise - I work with clients to find a more positive future. From Anxiety to Depression to Panic Attacks, I believe we can all find new ways to feel calmer and more positive. Having someone there to support, encourage and listen can be so beneficial. I appreciate how hard it can be to ask for help, and talk to a total stranger about your life. I'm here to help and support you, not to judge. All sessions are completely confidential.

As a working therapist for many years, I feel that my work has givens me a wealth of experience in working with clients who are struggling with a wide variety of issues. So if you are going through a difficult time in your life, and feel that family and friends can be helpful, but are too emotionally involved to help you find a way forward, then it may well be that you need some independent support in getting to where you want to be.

I will support you 100% of the way with an individual approach that is as unique as you are and work at a pace that suits you.

In addition to my counselling practice, I supervise other counsellors and train students in counselling towards the well recognised CPCAB Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling.

I have also taken additional training in Emotionally Focussed Therapy for Couples which is a well proven, compassionate and gentle therapy with exceptionally high rates of success.

As a Registered Member of the BACP and the BABCP, my work is informed and guided by their codes of Ethical Practice and Professional Guidelines.
