Many people experience stress, anxiety, depression, bereavement and other issues which impact on their mental health and wellbeing. Therefore, to meet individual needs, I offer a confidential counselling and psychotherapy service.
I believe that the therapeutic relationship is important for the effectiveness of the therapy and as such I aim to establish a relationship of trust, in a safe environment, for my clients so that we can work together on what is most concerning them.
I am also a licensed practitioner for the ‘Understanding Your Eating Programme’ designed to help people understand where their eating difficulties have come from, improve their relationship with food and be more aware of how food and eating may be misused and become entangled with emotions as a way of dealing with them. I offer both one to one and small group sessions.
