About me

What do you want from life? Probably things like - Good health; happy, fulfilling relationships and family life; rewarding work you enjoy that earns you a good living; engaging in meaningful and fun activities.

Most people come to counselling when one or more of these areas aren't working as well as they'd like them to. To find peace of mind it's necessary to address all levels: body, mind and emotions. In the supportive environment of our counselling sessions you'll talk about the things that matter to you and share things that trouble you. This will help you see what actions you can to take to make positive changes and develop self confidence.

Alongside your therapy process I will teach you coping strategies & practical skills so you can manage your life in a more positive, productive and contented way. You'll learn techniques to calm your mind and body to manage issues such as negative circular thinking patterns; loss of confidence; performance anxiety and painful, stress induced tension.

From this state you'll be in a better position to make informed choices, have less stressful interactions with people and take wiser action in your life. Some people call my approach Embodied Mindfulness.

I offer both short-term focused counselling or more in-depth, on-going counselling support.

Call or email me to set up an initial session.
