I offer a safe, supportive and confidential environment in which we can begin to build a trusting relationship. Sometimes we do not know exactly what the issue is that is making us unhappy and need time to explore aspects of ourselves and how we relate to others. Therapy allows us the space to do so with a therapist who is respectful of our needs and provides the space for us to become more self-aware, to connect with self-compassion and to enjoy freedom from the internal voices Taking the first step to finding a therapist takes courage and I believe that the relationship between the therapist and client is key to a successful outcome. For this reason, I offer an initial consultation, free of charge that enables you to decide whether you will be comfortable working with me.
During therapy you will explore how you think, feel and behave and how you adapted to cope with life’s difficulties. You will have the opportunity to redecide how you chose to live your life and to set goals to achieve your aims.

“Each week I came away with things that helped me. I never felt there was something I couldn’t say or feel. I never worried in advance about what would be discussed, it always felt very natural.”
“Brilliant experience. It really helps to be free to express oneself in a safe non-judgemental environment and receive unbiased encouraging help.”
“Thank you for listening to me, it has been incredibly helpful to process what has been happening and how I feel.”
