About me

Welcome to my profile!

How I can help you?

It is not always that easy to talk through how we are really feeling to those around us. Especially if you are experiencing anxiety, depression, an addiction, anger or relationship issues. Sometimes we don’t want to burden them. Or we feel they just won’t understand.

When you come to see me, I provide:

Safety

Respect

Confidentiality

Support as an individual and not just a number

Honesty

and Time

I will give you the opportunity to explore any issues or problems you could be experiencing without condemnation or judgement.

Helping you to live your life to your full potential

How we will work together

I have a good track record of working with clients where I look at the underlying causes and not just what is happening in your life right now, how you are feeling and the issues you are facing. I will help you understand why you feel or behave the way you do. I will support you and provide you with tools for your life. This will help you to live your life beyond therapy.

I also work Holistically, looking at everything that affects you. This would be what you think and feel, your self-worth, your health, your surroundings and the people in your life etc. For example, if you are experiencing general anxiety disorder, when your health or nutrition is poor it affects how you feel about yourself. You will struggle to improve things as the energy that good food and sleep gives you would be lacking. Another example is if you experience a panic disorder. I will support you, not only in working through the underlying issues, I will provide relaxation techniques and activities you could incorporate in your life easily.

I work in Sutton Coldfield

I have premises conveniently located in Sutton Coldfield Town Centre. It is easily accessible by public transport with parking, both free and paid, close by. The premises has disabled access.

I also work online

Online therapy will give you the opportunity to speak to me through Skype without having to meet me face to face.

Online therapy also gives you the opportunity to speak to me without having to meet me face to face. This could be for whatever reason

Who do I work with?

I work with individuals on a 1:1 basis

Young People

Couples

Families

Groups

What happens in the first session?

I understand that taking the first steps for help could be daunting, but people would describe me as warm, friendly and down to earth. The first session will be a start for us to get to know each other and for you to begin to understand how I work.

What can you do next?

I also offer free 15-minute, telephone consultation to help you understand how I work and how I can help you. You can contact me by telephone on 07748 297480 or by email.

I Look forward to hearing from you.
