About me

In these busy times there can be little time to stop and think. Counselling provides the opportunity to do so in a safe, non-judgemental environment where you can explore your thoughts and feelings and express them openly. When life gets difficult we tend to keep ourselves busy, without taking the time to process our thoughts and feelings. Unprocessed thoughts and feelings stay inside us until they are expressed and released, they can build up and weigh us down without us realising it.

Maybe you want to finally come to terms with your past.

Maybe you are fed up with thinking about the past and want to look towards the future.

Maybe you want to discover who you are and what you want from life.

Maybe you already know but are not sure how to get there.

I am an integrative counsellor so I use techniques from many different types of counselling such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I work in a person centred way, which means it is all about you and your needs. Counselling can be useful for gaining acceptance, dealing with loss and recovering from trauma. It can help with problem solving and give you the confidence to deal with difficult situations. It can help you to understand yourself and others in a healthier way. Counselling can also provide you with skills and techniques which you can apply to new situations, building resilience and self-confidence.

My approach is warm, positive and professional. I will work with your values, beliefs and view of the world. I embrace individuality, and will manage your thoughts and feelings safely and ethically. I am flexible around length, frequency and location of sessions. I offer a free initial thirty minute consultation which will help you to decide whether counselling with me is the right decision.
