About me

I am a fully qualified humanistic counsellor who offers individual, couple and group therapy in a safe and trusting environment for you to explore what is troubling you. I work in a relational way, which means that I value the relationship that we build.

Counselling can bring a growing awareness and understanding of our behaviours and help us to find alternative choices.  This can empower us to make positive changes; sometimes being heard and seen can help us accept.

I am trained in EMDR which is an approach that seems to 'unblock' the brain's processing so that traumatic memories become ordinary ones.  It can also be helpful for a variety of emotional and behavioural problems.  It is one of the treatments for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).

I currently run a private practice alongside working for the NHS treating addiction. Prior to this I have worked at an Inpatient Psychiatric Unit, Men's Prisons, Doctors Surgery and Private Sectors. This experience has given me the knowledge and understanding that enables me to work effectively with depression, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, personality disorders, childhood attachment issues, as well as low self esteem and relationship issues.

I offer a free 20 minute phone call for us to explore what you need.  Please feel free to contact me for an informal discussion or to arrange an initial session.

There is no obligation to commit long-term. Sometimes it helps to talk in confidence to someone outside of your immediate environment about important and difficult personal and professional decisions.
