About me

I can offer counselling to adults, couples and young people in a safe, comfortable and confidential environment in a residential area with plenty of free parking. This will give you the opportunity to talk through any issues that may be impacting on your personal or professional life.

If you find it difficult to leave your home, live in a rural area or have any mobility problems I can offer session via Skype.

As a Humanistic Counseller I use a variety of techniques such, as Person Centered Counselling which allows us to work together as 2 equals only dealing with what you are comfortable exploring; this is helpful for general dissatifaction with life, difficulties coming to term with painful past events, relationship difficulties, bereavement or illness.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy which helps you change the way you think and the way you behave it focuses on the "here and now" it is helpful for; anxiety, anger issues, depression, stress and phobias.

Psychodynamic Counselling the aim of which is to help you bring to the surface your true feelings, it is helpful for, dealing with problems from the past.

We will follow a simple 7 stage model which can be done short term (6 sessions) medium term (12-20 sessions) or long term (more than 20 sessions)

I believe that the counselling relationship is built on trust and equality and I am looking forward to hearing from you. I can offer appointments day time or evenings
