About me

I'm a psychotherapeutic counsellor who specialises in anxiety, depression and addiction,  I'm also certified in ADHD.   I provide an integrative approach to my clients and tailor my service so that is right for the individual.  

I work with a wide range of issues including Anxiety, Anxiety Disorders, Depression, Addiction, ADHD, Stress management, Depression, Trauma and Relationship issues. 

You may be experiencing difficult emotions,  a distressing event and have feelings of being overwhelmed, anxiety, depression or dissatisfaction with life. Therapy may involve talking about life events, feelings, emotions, relationships, ways of thinking and patterns of behaviour.  I will listen, empathise, encourage and support you to see your issues more clearly or from a different perspective and help you make the necessary changes.

Clients always express how comfortable they feel and they wish they had started their journey sooner.  I will assure your therapeutic journey is knowledgeable and calm.

I believe the therapeutic relationship is of upmost importance as this allows a safe pathway for you to discover yourself, grow, heal and find new ways of living healthily and begin the transformation to who you desire and deserve to be.

I offer therapist services to adults, older adolescents and businesses.  Sessions are face to face,  online or telephone depending your personal preference.

I support local businesses with counselling services, mental wellbeing and stress management workshops.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
