About me

I can help you if you're suffering with depression, anxiety, bereavement/ loss, alcohol/ substance problems, and more. I offer a genuinely understanding and empathetic service, which helps empower the individual to find their own solutions in a supportive atmosphere.

You can bring whatever you choose to therapy, gain clarity and find a positive way forward, by exploring your experiences, feelings and thought processes.

Currently  offering telephone/ Zoom sessions only, during the pandemic. 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 complete an Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling (Ad Dip PC).

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 travelled extensively and have an understanding of and an interest in different cultures and belief systems, which I believe compliments the service I offer.

Throughout the Covid pandemic, I have been working with many clients suffering from anxiety, depression, loneliness and bereavement. I understand what a challenge the current situation is for many, and believe I offer excellent coping strategies which has really helped my clients. Please get in touch and we can start one of the most important journeys anyone can take, in an atmosphere of support and understanding. I am currently doing sessions by Zoom or phone to keep us all safe.
