Why counselling therapy?

If you are at a crossroads in your life, therapy is a place to explore your options in a safe and contained environment. Sometimes there's no 'win-win', so we must choose, albeit with regret. I can offer support as you come to terms with change and adjustment. Sitting with me, I can hear what might seem unspeakable and can consider what might seem unthinkable. It is a confidential service. The prospect of talking to a stranger about your problems in life can be quite daunting. However, this could be a turning point in your life. During your sessions, we will together explore your issues in-depth, making meaning of difficult feelings and patterns, and how it may be a call for change and transformation.

Questions a lot of people ask

Why Counselling is More Important Than Medication

In meditative traditions, the purpose of drawing attention away from the outside world and abandoning habitual patterns of perceiving and thinking is to facilitate personal change. The focused attention, self-forgetfulness, and heightened awareness of body states are supposed to open the mind to decreased preoccupation with one's own suffering, a move from self-deception to self-understanding, and resulting changes in attitudes and behaviour.

However, meditation is not for everyone, we will discover some other technique suits you.

Some information about me
As an integrative counsellor, I use psychodynamic principles, incorporating with person-centred and cognitive behavioural therapy and many other creative therapies in my work. I have experience in counselling within the Health services and other primary care settings. I work with adults on a 1:1 basis, offering short term or longer, open-ended support.

My aim is to foster a positive and honest therapeutic relationship, an experience, which you can take, forward and improve your relationships on the outside.


I provide a confidential, safe, non-judgmental space to explore what may be contributing to your current difficulties providing you with an opportunity to gain another perspective and explore other options and ways of managing your issues.

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.
