About me

Are you feeling you need help with problems causing you stress and anxiety? Do you feel alone with the circumstances in which you are feeling depressed?

I am able to assist those who find themselves in such situations.

I can have both evening and daytime availability. I work sensitively and with compassion and kindness providing short and long term counselling in a confidential setting.

I have over 20 years of experience helping people with a range of issues including:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • bereavement
  • drug & alcohol dependency
  • family and work related stress.

How can counselling help?

Talking things through with a professional, and someone who has been in therapy is often beneficial to make sense of what is going on and how one feels. Whilst operating mainly in a person centred manner, I also work with techniques from CBT, Solution Focused Therapy and Motivational Interviewing where this can be worthwhile for clients.

In addition to this, I offer assistance to relieve employment related stress, and anxiety within the role of carer.

I welcome you to call me on: 07511242198 or click here to send me an email.
