About me

I am a registered UKCP Gestalt Psychotherapist and Relate qualified Relationship Counsellor. I work face to face and online, short term and long term.

I  have over 15 years experience of working with people who experience loss, bereavement, relationship difficulties, trauma, depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem. I worked as a Macmillan Counsellor for 6 years working with both individuals and couples where there had been a cancer diagnosis. I see individuals and couples who define their sexuality as heterosexual, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender. I take a Humanistic approach, which means my aim is to support and enable you to find ways to overcome your difficulties and develop your full potential.

Individual Psychotherapy/Counselling

There are times in your life when you may feel you need to speak to someone outside your family or friendship circle. You may be feeling isolated during a particularly stressful time in your life, or experience depression, anxiety, general anxiety disorder or may not be aware of the reasons you are feeling unhappy, sad or dissatisfied with your life. You may find forming and/or maintaining relationships difficult, or feel you are consistently repeating the same negative patterns in your relationships. I see individuals both short term and longer term.

Relationship Counselling is for anyone who is experiencing difficulties with their relationship, you may be married, living together or apart. All couples experience periods when their relationship becomes strained for different reasons. It's when communication breaks down difficulties can become overwhelming, which in turn can create anxiety, depression and a distance between you as couple. Through the counselling process communication between you as a couple can improve and consequently enable you to deal with any difficulties you are experiencing.

What happens at my first appointment?

Your first appointment gives you an opportunity to explore what brings you for counselling and what you are wanting from counselling. We will both discuss whether my service suits your needs and if agreed will discuss number of appointments required.

How often will I have appointment

Appointments take an hour and usually take place once a week but can take place fortnightly depending on your needs. The number of appointments is tailored to the needs of the couple or individual depending on what is discussed at the initial appointment.
