About me

  • UPDATE  COVID-19   I am operating extended hours for access and can offer phone or virtual/digital/Skype session, and for the current time, face to face providing a risk assessment conversation has taken place. Work place (EAP) clients can contact me directly to work on a plan to support staff. 

I help individuals, couples and groups by using counselling, coaching and personal development techniques in a way that suits both your personality and lifestyle.

To get rapid change, I use a range of supportive face to face approaches including CBT, dynamic coaching and professional education to find strategies to manage changes in both personal, family and work life.

Medium to longer term traditional person centred counselling can be given to support emotional issues for individuals who wish for more space and time to work through the anxiety of traumatic events.

I work with conflict management in family units, relationship issues, general anxiety disorder, depression, guiding on development.  I work with clients to find strategies for them to become emotionally stronger for life's future events. Resilience building for a future more in control.

Sessions take place on our premises in a private professional therapy room based in Grantham (NG31) and not in a home environment.  The location is air conditioned, comfortable with plenty of parking, secure access and multi purpose access to other organisations allowing for privacy on entering.

Telephone/Skype support can also be arranged for people who have care commitments or busy people on the move.

Flexible appointments (days, evenings or weekends).  Appointments can be arranged over the phone, email or if you are keen to get started straight away, you can access the Reflections Practice Ltd website to see availability, with you diary in hand, and make a booking now.
