Thank you for visiting my page.
How rare is it to have the time and space to explore your thoughts and feelings around issues in your life with someone who you can trust. With someone who really cares,who really hears you but who does not judge or criticise?
Beginning therapy can be a very difficult step to take but can be one of the most rewarding choices you will ever make. Having someone to talk to who will really listen is a very positive experience.
You deserve that time, purely for you.
You may be experiencing, anxiety /depression, struggling to face life past cancer, relationship issues, or just don't feel things are right at the moment. Whatever the issue may be, getting in touch is an important step towards a better future.
I am a professional therapist with an approach which is Integrative in that I draw from various theories to suit my clients individual needs. By helping you to explore your life and the relationships within this, I can help you to gain understanding of how your thoughts, feelings and behaviours affect your life and relationships, holding you back. Together, working in a safe, confidential space we can work towards a better way of living.
I adhere to the professional and ethical code of practice of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and offer both short and long term therapeutic weekly sessions. I also offer online counselling.
