Counselling will offer you the opportunity to explore the kinds of problems which many of us encounter at either home or work, whether they are current problems of a practical nature or repetitive patterns from your past affecting your daily life.
I will work to help you make the changes you want, in a professional environment where you feel safe and respected, using effective psychotherapy to make a real difference to your life.
Some of the areas I can help are: anger, anxiety, bereavement, communication, confidence, depression, loneliness, procrastination, redundancy, relationship problems, stress and worry.
I will listen to you with skill and empathy, remaining non-judgemental with the aim of supporting you to make the changes you seek. Or if you are unsure why you feel unhappy then that's OK too; you will have the space to explore this and we will work at a pace that is right for you.

Transactional Analysis (TA) is a social psychology developed by Eric Berne, MD. Over the past four decades Berne's theory has evolved to include applications to psychotherapy, counselling, education and organisational development.
TA is a powerful tool to bring about human well being. In psychotherapy, TA utilitises a contract for specific changes desired by the client and involves the 'Adult' in both the client and the practitioner to sort out behaviours, emotions and thoughts that prevent the development of full human potential.
Transactional Analysts intervene as they work with clients, in a safe, protective, mutually respectful environment, to eliminate dysfunctional behaviours and establish & reinforce positive relationship styles and healthy functioning.
