About me

As the client counselor relationship is at the very core of my work it is important to me that we can work effectively together to achieve the best possible outcome for you. 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 work in an integrative way to suit your specific counselling needs. I can offer you a safe non judgemental counselling space where I will welcome you with an open mind and heart, as I very much value diversity and respect the individual. We will work together at your pace to help you explore the issues that are troubling you.

I work with a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, self esteem, relationship difficulties, change and loss, bereavement, the ageing process, gender, identity issues, self acceptance and personal growth.

My special area of interest is in Womens Health and Well Being. Building on self- esteem, confidence, self- awareness and personal growth and development. Helping Women to find 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.

Mental Health Issues can be extremely challenging and impactful, particularly to so many young people in our present culture, and it is another area of work I am very interested in developing further. The ethos of my counselling work in this field is from the ideas and principles of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy. Working with Mind, Body, and Emotion. 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.
