About me

I offer an alternative to the medical-model that helps each client in a wholistic way by  including psychological, familial, socio-cultural, existential and spiritual dimensions of life. I have an unconventional background as a counsellor and a lot of personal life experience.

Helping you to increase your own self-empowerment is a key part of the work that I do.

It is easiest to contact me by email or text message. If you call to book a session and I don't answer, leave a message and let me know when I can call you back.

A first session will be used to discuss what you want to get out of counselling, to set some goals and decide upon a direction to head in. You can use a first session to determine whether I might be the right counsellor for you with no obligation to return. I often use a couple of clinical forms  called the CORE-OM and the GAD7 and PHQ9 which help us to gauge how things are for you.

I have a comfortable warm room. Occasionally my cat will keep us company and sleep as we talk. I will offer you a drink and I have a toilet that you can use if you need it.

Each client's reasons for seeking counselling differ and I will listen carefully to understand your unique situation to determine how I can help you make the progress you want to make.

My approach is integrative which means that I draw upon different approaches to counselling and therapy depending on your circumstances. I often suggest reading and exercises to progress the work inbetween sessions. We will review your goals regularly to make sure you get what you want out of your counselling.

  • Difficulties in living
