About me

As a Relate trained counsellor with 25 years clinical experience.  I'm able to help you work through a wide range of issues and problems. I work both long or short term with either couples or individuals tailoring my approach to your needs.

Many of us have times in our lives when we would like things to be different.  

We may feel sad, anxious, frustrated or overwhelmed.  We might feel dissatisfied with our work or relationship.  Maybe we want to come to terms with a loss or with past experiences.  Perhaps we want to develop our strengths, contribute to our communities more, or find more meaning and purpose in our lives.

What ever it is that you want to be different, counselling may be able to help. 

I can offer you:

A safe and confidential environment to talk through complex or difficult issues.
Help you to see your situation from a fresh perspective.
Facillitate the development of a better understanding of your experiences.
Help you to build your confidence.
Enable you to cope better or deal with your situation in a more informed way.
Help you make sense of what is happening for you (or you and a partner) and a chance to think about what you can do better.

Generally counselling with me might involve:

Talking through an issue in order to understand things better.
Making sense of a particular problem.
Problem solving, planning and decision making.
Changing behaviour.
Negotiating a life transition.
Dealing with difficult feelings and emotions.
Finding, analysing and acting on information.
Undoing self-critisism and enhancing self care.
Dealing with difficult or painful relationships.
