In times of difficulty talking can help.
We can all experience situations and emotions which leave us feeling confused, overwhelmed, and unable to cope. Talking through what’s happening for you with someone supportive can help.
I offer a warm, confidential, safe space for you to talk through your problems whether they are current or rise from past events. I will listen without judging and support you to explore your thoughts and feelings so you gain insight and understanding. Through greater awareness of yourself and your issues you can chose how best to move on.
I am an experienced counsellor based near Milton Keynes and Leighton Buzzard. I am warm, approachable and kind and believe everyone deserves to be valued and not judged. As a nurse and midwife I learnt the value of help from someone skilled and accepting.
My training as an integrative counsellor means I draw on a number of theoretical approaches to best suit your needs. These include Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Transactional Analysis and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. While I will work with many issues I have special interests in the areas of grief and loss, health concerns, infertility, sexual abuse and trauma. I offer short and long term work.
My private practice is based in a quiet village outside Milton Keynes within easy reach of Milton Keynes, Leighton Buzzard, Aylesbury and Dunstable. Off street parking is available on site.
Please contact me by phone or email to set up an initial meeting or with any questions.
