About me

CBT/Integrative Counselling available in Kenilworth and surrounding areas for adults. I work with people who are having difficulties in areas such as abuse, trauma, addiction, anxiety, stress, depression, eating disorders, panic attacks etc, and I specialise in codependent, dysfunctional relationships often associated with people affected by someone else's behaviour.

My work is focused on supporting you to revive and rekindle your potential - I believe passionately in supporting clients to a new view of their own self-empowerment. We will work on finding understanding, coping strategies, tools and new ways of thinking that will help you to in effect become your own therapist. You are the expert in you and I become your side-kick during the exploration of your issues, bringing a non-judgemental fresh perspective. I believe in working with a message of hope, at your pace, and with your goals at the forefront of our therapeutic relationship.

My approach is to collaborate with you and I think it is important you feel that you can work with me. If you would like to call me in the first instance to talk about your concerns please feel free to do so - 07545 486247.
