About me

A warm welcome,

Many people seek counselling because there is something in their life they want to change. Perhaps that is your relationship with yourself, or others, or your ability to manage day to day life. Maybe your past trauma is affecting you in the here and now. Life can feel hard sometimes and having a safe space to talk about your feelings can be truly transformative.

Are you feeling trapped by anxiety, or is depression stopping you from finding enjoyment in your life, do you find yourself worrying excessively? Talking therapy can help you to explore these feeling and understand how to manage them in your day to day life.

The type of therapy I provide is integrative, this basically means I draw on a number of different theories to best meet your need. I am also trained in cognitive behavioural therapy which can be useful when working with anxiety and depression. I work in a way that puts you at the centre, I believe that building a strong therapeutic relationship is the first step in therapy. I will then draw upon theory to help you to understand yourself better. Recognising your own patterns can change how you feel about yourself and how you view your world, it is within this knowledge that change and acceptance can take place.

I can provide you with a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space where you can talk freely about whatever is on your mind. There is no expectation about what you need to bring into the session and I can gently guide you through the process to ensure your goals are met and you feel heard.

If you have any questions please feel free to get in touch, I offer a 30minute free consultation.

I am also available for Employment Assistant Programme work.
