About me

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor, working in private practice for 14 years. I offer a free 30 minute consultation, to understand what brings you to therapy and for us to decide if I am the right therapist to work with you.

Life brings challenges to us all at times and often the support of our friends and family is not enough to help us move through these life events. You may be feeling anxious, suffering panic attacks, depression or it could be that issues from your childhood or relationship difficulties impact on your day to day life. At these times working with a professional counsellor can enable us to explore and make meaning of our experiences, noticing patterns of behaviour, thoughts and feelings that are limiting our lives or causing distress. With this understanding real change can be made enabling you to live a full and vibrant life.

It is well evidenced that the therapeutic relationship, between client and therapist is at the heart of successful therapeutic change. I work in a manner that is respectful, confidential, supportive and gently challenging . My training and experience allows me to work in an integrative manner, using a range of theoretical frameworks in a thoughtful and considered approach for each individual client.

I offer short term counselling and longer term psychotherapy for individuals, the issues that I work with include  :

Anxiety and panic attacks
Relationship difficulties
Low self esteem
Low confidence
Parenting challenges
Work related stress
Anger management
Childhood issues
Feeling like something is not quite ‘right’
Loss and bereavement
