About me

I can help anyone with depression, anxiety, bereavement/ loss, alcohol/ substance problems, and more. I offer a genuinely understanding and empathetic service, which aims to empower the individual to find their own solutions. I believe everyone has the ability to find their own answers to their issues and it is this focus on self-reliance which I try to help people tap into, and facilitate. Everyone is unique and whatever is holding you back/ causing you problems, I can help you work through, in an atmosphere of warmth and support.

Currently  offering telephone/ Zoom sessions only, during the pandemic at a reduced rate to ensure the service is accessible to those in need. I offer a confidential and non- judgemental service using a variety of approaches (CBT, REBT, person-centered, psychodynamic etc)

Training, qualifications & experience

With a background of working with men and women suffering from drug, alcohol and mental health issues, I have extensive experience of witnessing the impact of mental 'unwell-ness' on the individual, on family relationships and also on wider society. This interest led me to do a BA Hons Social Science degree after A levels, years ago, but more recently I have chosen to focus on working with individuals to help them resolve their problems, so also trained and obtained an Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling (Ad Dip PC). I completed my training in CGL a drug and alcohol agency in Stevenage, and successfully helped many with their addictions.

In addition to my qualifications, I also believe my extensive life experience greatly enhances my approach. I have experienced a wide range of different personal circumstances over the years, which I think makes me particularly empathic and non-judgemental. In addition to my personal experience, I have traveled extensively and have an understanding of and an interest in various spiritual/religious belief systems and alternative therapies, which I believe compliments the service I offer.

I believe that positive mental health needs a holistic approach- one that takes into account all the needs of the individual - spiritual, physical, environmental -and so my service is a thorough one, but ultimately, whatever my clients want to talk about and get out of the sessions is absolutely fine.
