About me

I have many years experience of counselling and psychotherapy working with individual adults and young people, couples or families with a broad range of issues, helping them gain insights into their difficulties and working with them to find a way forward. Everyone has their own reason for getting in touch with a therapist, I see people with all sorts of difficulties and issues including, but not limited to, those listed below:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Relationship issues
  • Family issues
  • Low self esteem
  • Phobias
  • Affairs and betrayals
  • Separation and divorce
  • Abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Couples issues
  • Anger management
  • Work stress
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Trauma
  • PTSD
  • Parenting issues
  • Low self confidence
  • Personal development

For most people this is the first time they have consulted a counsellor or psychotherapist and they may be understandably apprehensive. So the first step is to talk on the phone or to arrange an initial meeting, this will give you a good idea of what to expect and to see how it feels before taking the decision to continue. The initial meeting is an opportunity for me to find out more about you and help you identify what approach is going to be most helpful – I am able to offer a variety of options for working together depending on your individual needs.

My welcoming practice rooms provide a comfortable place for us to meet and discuss in confidence what is troubling you. Please contact me on 01892 537999.
