About me

I am a warm caring NCS Accredited therapist who will provide a safe space for you to talk about some of the issues that may be making life feel difficult for you,

There may be many reasons for wanting to begin counselling or psychotherapy including a recent, or current crisis, depression, anxiety, bereavement, relationship struggles, or issues in the workplace. Or, you may feel the time has come to take a closer look at those problems, or patterns of thinking and behaviour, that seem all too familiar to you that may be holding you back from reaching your full potential.

Many people find their struggles to be too broad or confusing to place in any particular box,  and experience a difficult-to-locate sense of dissatisfaction with their lives so you don't need to be clear about your reasons to access counselling.

I have experience with many issues but my two personal passions and what drew me to counselling in the first place are working with couples and mental health in the workplace as I believe that our relationships and our work life are core to our sense of well being and make up the largest part of our lives.

I am also very experienced in time limited, solutions focused counselling in which we work on a particular area of concern for 6 to 8 weeks only.

Issues I work with include:

Anxiety   • Addiction   • Depression •   Meaning • Loss •   Grief • Sexuality •   Family Dynamics • Relationship Difficulties   • Parenthood • Identity • Stress • Workplace Stress • Self-esteem • Trauma • Abuse • Gender •   Self-esteem

I offer a 15 minute free telephone consultation so call or email me to arrange an appointment for a chat and we can go from there.

I work in a residential area that has plenty of parking.

Training, qualifications & experience

Advanced Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy

MNCS (Accred)

BACP (Reg Member)

Diploma in Couples Counselling (CORST Accred)

Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

To be confident that I can provide the very best counselling approach I ensured that the modality of all my training was in ‘Integrative’ approach and this means that I can use the very best of many differing theories to best support my clients in my work with them and I constantly strive to keep abreast of the very latest in thinking when it comes to aspects of mental health.

I recently completed a year working in primary care within a GP surgery and this proved a rewarding and valuable experience for me as I came into contact with so many areas of concern for my clients and the integrative approach meant that I could tailor my clients needs to the most appropriate therapeutic approach for them.

Further information

All about couple counselling.

Relationships are an essential part of our lives and modern life and the demands of the workplace or family life can take it toll on even the best of them. The way people communicate and form relationships have changed in recent years and technology, too, has had an impact on how we see ourselves and how we relate to others.

All couples face challenges and how we deal with these challenges is vital if we want to maintain healthy communication, resolve conflict that might have arisen and encourage intimacy.

How might couples counselling help?

There are many reasons why couples decide to come for relationship therapy and this type of counselling service might be useful for

  • Couples who are having relationship problems and want to resolve these conflicts
  • Couples who are facing the end of a relationship but hope to try to work things out
  • Couples who are ending their relationship but want to end on good terms
  • Couples experiencing sexual or intimacy issues within their relationship
  • Couples who are engaged or about to make a long-term commitment but want to improve their relationship before going forward.
  • Individuals who are struggling with relationships and want to build better personal relationships in the future

Every couple is different and as a therapist I can help you to recognise and understand the communication, behavioural, sexual and emotional dynamics that might exist between you and your partner.

I have experience working with both straight and gay couples, couples in long and shorter-term relationships and with couples experiencing sexual or intimacy issues within their relationship. Your first appointment will provide an opportunity for you and your partner to discuss any issues within your relationship, identify any goals in couples therapy and begin a dialogue of open communication.

I don’t take sides and I help couples by identifying and assessing behavioural patterns in their relationship and encouraging fair, balanced communication between both partners. I understand that issues within relationships are often very private and personal. I do not judge a couples’ personal choices or sexual experiences. All discussions in couples counselling are handled sensitively and, of course, are always confidential.

Couples counselling may be ongoing and open-ended, or time-limited to 10 sessions for those who prefer help in the short-term. Discussions in couples counselling are always confidential.
