About me

I offer counselling sessions for individuals and adolescents. I know that, for many, even the thought of beginning counselling can be daunting. I hope that my non-judgemental, informal and flexible style makes that first step easier to manage.

Because the range of challenges that people face in their lives is so diverse, I take an integrated approach to counselling – drawing on psychodynamic, humanistic and transpersonal ideas. I see the counselling process as collaborative – we will look at what your aims and objectives might be and look at how we can work together to achieve them.

Individual counselling

Counselling offers the opportunity for you to talk about the difficulties that may be causing you emotional distress and that you feel you cannot manage on your own. I offer the space to do this in an open and confidential way that is rarely possible with friends and family. This may include exploring how earlier childhood experiences might be influencing how you react/respond to certain situations. The range of difficulties that you face might include relationships issues (intimate, family, social), mental health issues, sexual issues, anxiety, depression, anger, and stress.

Adolescent counselling (13-19 yrs)

Often, it is other people in a young person’s life who make the decision that they might benefit from and should enter into counselling.  The majority of young people, however, report at the end of counselling, that it has been very helpful. They feel happier; are better able to deal with their problems and are better able to concentrate. I offer a safe and confidential space for young people to talk about the wide range of difficulties that they might be experiencing in their lives. These can include anxiety, depression, bullying, self-harm, self-esteem, issues with eating and food, difficulties in their relationships and dealing with parents’ problems.
