About me

Are symptoms such as anxiety, perfectionism, depression, low self-esteem or constantly worrying affecting you more and more?

I would like to help you towards exploring and understanding what has brought you to this point. Sometimes there can be past experiences and events which may be having more of an impact on how you have had to learn to cope than you may be aware of. This can lead you into finding yourself stuck in ways of thinking and behaving which have become unhelpful, but you find yourself unable to break free. I am here to help you find ways to start to make more useful, positive changes and choices.

I am an experienced NHS counsellor and have a special interest in anxiety and attachment disorders. I have undertaken both rigorous and extensive training in different types of approaches to counselling and psychotherapy. This means that we can find an approach that best suits you. For example, together we may discuss your choosing psychotherapy if you are seeking lasting change for long-term problems, or CBT if you are looking for more immediate help

I understand how talking about life events and experiences can feel both daunting and painful, as well as rather unusual, but in my experience but a more insightful, deeper understanding of ourselves through the process of therapy can bring relief and help make lasting changes to how we feel, think and act in so many aspects of our lives.

It is important you find the right person to help you and I always suggest an initial consultation to see if you feel comfortable with me and to think about whether I am the right person to help you. For more details please feel free to contact me
