About me

Are you struggling to cope? Do you need to talk confidentially to a fully qualified and UKCP registered Psychotherapist or Counsellor? Your Safe Harbour can provide you with a safe and quiet space to think through your issues and to have a non-judgemental ear to listen and to reflect with you what your options may be.

Nearly everyone will need counselling/psychotherapy at some point in their life. This could be caused by a specific event or an ever increasing feeling that you would like something about yourself or your relationships to change.

Reasons for contacting me may include anxiety, bereavement; stress management, bullying, assisted conception, redundancy, parenting, abuse, relationships, self-harm, depression, eating disorders, anxiety, self-esteem, work-related issues, family change, or simply wanting things to change. I often hear "My issues aren't very important" but if has brought you to see me, then, whatever it is that you want to talk about, is important enough for me.

Relationship Counselling can include Friends, Family, Partner, Break-up, Marriage & Divorce

Psychotherapy is ongoing therapy to help you to deal with your history, recurrent problems or abuse that you may have suffered

Fertility counselling may include helping those who are thinking about, or having, IVF, ICSI or similar treatments, those making decisions about whether to use a donor or double donors, miscarriages/stillbirths, death of an unborn twin and also the eventual arrival of your much wanted child.

I also offer pre-nuptual counselling to help you get off to the right start with your relationship/marriage.

If you want to find out if Your Safe Harbour is for you, then call 07767 498520 to arrange an initial session to decide whether we can help you.

Please note we also have rooms in Rugby if this is more convenient for you. All groups are currently run in Rugby.
