About me

At my counselling and psychotherapy practice in Carlisle, I offer you the opportunity to talk about things that you find difficult in life and in relationships. I offer affordable emotional support and practical help to enable you to understand and, as a result, overcome some of life’s difficulties.

I work both long and short term with adult and adolescent men, women and couples. My main training is in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy, but I have also trained in counselling for children and adolescents. Also I am trained in working with severe and complex traumas and suicide.

My Therapy room is a comfortable, private, confidential, safe and supportive space. You can bring any issues, worries, concerns here. Only you know what life is like for you. However, If you choose to come to therapy, I will work empathically alongside you. As a result, I will help you make a space in which you can explore the changes you would like to make. Following this you will be able to put change into action at a pace that is right for you.

If you would like to book a Free Consultation, get in touch.
