About me

Firstly, be assured that you are in safe hands. I have over 20 years experience as a therapist in private practice, the NHS and Employee Assistance Programmes. I am qualified and registered to work with individuals, couples and families.

I have extensive experience helping clients overcome: 

·        Anxiety

·       Depression 

·      Sadness

·      Feeling Unheard

·      Anger 

·      Relationship Issues, Affairs & Betrayals

·      Low Self Esteem 

·      Feeling Helpless, Hopeless or Defeated

·      Inability to Function 

·      Negative Thinking

Most of us will experience these difficulties at some point in our lives. We don't always want to 'trouble' our friends and family. No matter how hard we try, we can end up feeling defeated. We simply cannot think straight. Sadly, if we continue to 'push through' on our own, our mood, sleep, motivation and work can all deteriorate. Relationships may suffer too, We may not make the  best decisions. 

My approach

I am warm, compassionate and welcoming...offering you a safe, confidential space to explore your difficulties. My aim is to re-establish your confidence, resilience and emotional well-being so you can live a positive and fulfilling life.

I draw on my experience to tailor your therapy. At the beginning of therapy,  it is helpful to do a holistic assessment ...then together we decide how to work.  I often incorporate Mindfulness and Coaching  strategies because clients find these models so useful and helpful in improving mood, motivation, sleep and anxiety. 

What next ?

Deciding to seek counselling is never easy. That's why I'm happy to offer a free consultation session, so that you can decide if I'm the right counsellor for you. Then, we can start working together, to create the future you deserve.
