About me

Sometimes... We need to talk…..

Often its plain sailing, you are enjoying life's cruise surrounded by your loved ones. The warmth of the sun on your skin and the freshness of the breeze through your hair one minute then suddenly storm clouds begin to gather. The sky gets darker and darker, the waves larger and seemingly endless. The wind is growing stronger taking you in all directions.To stay safe you need to head for shore and anchor down. Perhaps the lighthouse on the shore can guide you towards that safety.

Counselling and CBT can offer that safe place in which to explore your stormy skies. A lighthouse or the safe haven of the harbor counselling offers a therapeutic, non-judgemental space to help you navigate yourself through the thunder and lightning to calmer seas.

What I offer as a Counsellor & Life Coach…

  • A safe, relaxing and confidential space
  • Coping strategies and lifestyle skills
  • I use an integrated approach to counselling including CBT
  • Anger & Stress Management
  • I offer the unique opportunity to "Walk n Talk". In a safe environment we can explore your experiences whilst we walk reducing anxieties some people experience when talking face to face.
  • Children & Young People
  • Workshops
  • Personal training and health management

Additional Issues I work with are wide ranging:

Depression, Anxiety, Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Panic attacks, PMDD & PMT, Trauma and PTSD, flashbacks, relationships, family issues, suicidal thoughts, self- harm, low self-esteem, life transitions, life coaching, mindfulness, loss and bereavement, terminal illness, eating disorders.

I am passionate about counselling and the well-being of others. You the client are the director of your counselling process whilst I facilitate a safe and non-judgemental environment for you to explore your concerns, identify goals and solutions. I use skills, tools and knowledge to progress you towards your therapeutic goals and wellness.

As a Person Centred counsellor, my clients are in control of their therapeutic journey. Building a trusting, non judgemental relationship in a safe space is an important part of the counselling practice. To complement and enhance this process I integrate methods from Humanistic, Psycho-dynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapies, Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Life coaching.
