About me

Hello and Welcome.

First of all, I want to say well done! Often the first step is the hardest, admitting to ourselves that the time has come to seek help.

If you are new to the world of counselling, it can be daunting- trying to figure out what type of counselling is best for you; whether to do in-person or online; and especially trying to find the perfect counsellor!

I would encourage you to stop looking. Just pick a counsellor, any on this directory, and give them a call or send them a message. You should feel better for having done so! You don't have to decide to work with that counsellor there and then, but having contacted one, will make it easier and easier to contact others until both you and your chosen counsellor are satisfied that you are a good match! 

About Me 

As you may be able to tell, I enjoy working with ordinary people who struggle with ordinary stresses and anxieties in life- like trying to find a counsellor! That's right. Feeling stressed and anxious is very normal. Becoming depressed and feeling like life is just too much, is normal. What is not normal, is living in the individualistic society that has developed in recent decades, where we've lost the art of communication.

Counselling with me will involve authentic communication in which you will feel that you are genuinely being listened to and heard- because you will be! I have undertaken extensive training to become a Psychodynamic Counsellor - multiple different forms of counselling- who can do just that. 

But it doesn't end there! In time as you become secure in our therapeutic relationship, you will hopefully become more and more comfortable, to the point where it will be easier to open up. Together, we might be able to explore some of your past and present hurts and traumas and hopefully process them in a way that will bring healing.
