Online / Email Counselling
We can all experience difficulties at some point in our life, and it can be a brave first-step to engage with counselling. I aim to offer you a safe, confidential space where you can talk through your difficulties, situation and feelings. From my 17 years experience as a therapist, I have often witnessed how counselling can help people make sense of their difficulties, and discover new ways of coping. You can gain new insights and understandings about your emotional difficulties, your behaviour and your relationships, that help you to consider the best way forward for you, in order to feel more positive and fulfilled within your life.
Throughout my experience, I have worked with a host of clients from a diverse range of backgrounds. I specialise in a wide range of issues such as anxiety, stress, low mood and depression, personal relationships, low confidence, self-esteem issues, loss and bereavement, family issues, cultural issues, personal/academic struggles whilst at university, eating issues, alcohol related difficulties, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive tendencies, phobias, and self-harm.
I offer short-term and long-term counselling to adults and young people, as well as some online/email counselling. I also offer supervision to qualified Counsellors and trainee Counsellors.
