About me

I very much value diversity and respect the individual. People differ we may face similar life problems and stresses that can impact on our health, mental wellbeing, relationships, and work. Yet our experience of these problems are unique and personal to each of us.

I will welcome you with an open heart and mind and can offer you a safe non judgemental counselling space where we will work together at your pace to help you explore the issues that are troubling you.

I work in an integrative way to suit the specific counselling needs of each client. Working with a wide range of issues such as, depression, anxiety, self- esteem, confidence, body image,  bereavement, change and loss, the ageing process, relationship difficulties, gender, identity issues.  

My special area of interest is in Womens Health and Well-being. Affirming the importance and  benefits of  self-care, and building on self-awareness, self esteem, self -image, confidence, and personal development. Empowering women to find and reconnect with a sense of their own identity which can often be lost in the many other roles they have in life.

I also have a work background and wide experience in working with domestic abuse.

Another area of interest for me is Mental Health Issues which can be extremely challenging and impactful on a persons every day life, particularly for so many young people in our present culture. My work in this particular area is based around the ideas and principles of Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and Self-Compassion.

Mindfulness is the emerging of awareness, of being present in the moment .Not thinking about the past, or worrying about the future but learning to be fully focussed on the moment, what's happening now, with a non judgemental attitude and self compassion.

My work is face to face brief therapy and face to face long term therapy, The number of sessions are flexible and open ended to suit the type of therapy you require.
