About me

Welcome.

There can be times in our lives when we need someone to talk to who is not a partner, family member or a friend. This could be because we are having difficulty with the important people in our life or we are behaving in ways that are harmful to ourselves or others. If the stresses and strains of relationships, work, family, illness or other problems are making you unhappy then talking to someone not connected to the difficulty can help.

I am a qualified and experienced psychotherapist who has spent many years helping people deal with the challenges they face. Whatever your reason for starting therapy it is a sign of your strength, wisdom and a deep-down belief that problems need not overpower you and that life can be fulfilling and happy.

I have particular experitise in alcohol counselling and couple therapy.

Alcohol Counselling

Are you drinking too much?

If you are drinking more than 21 units (men) and 14 units (women) a week then you are not alone. It is estimated that 90% of the adult population drink alcohol with over 10 million people in Britain drinking above safe limits.

There are many reasons why people drink. You may have been brought up in a household where drinking was part of family life.Perhaps you play sport and drinking after your match/game is the norm. Maybe you started drinking to cope with a stressful situation or the pressures of work and are now in the habbit of regular drinking. Maybe you feel that it relaxes you, gives you confidence or helps you cope.

Drinking too much however, can have a significant impact on your health, wealth, family, work and relationships. If you are finding it hard to stop or difficult to control then you may need professional help.

Couples Counselling

Is everything good in your relationship?

Sometimes, however much we love each other our relationships can feel hard work. Maybe we are struggling to communicate or be understood. Perhaps the daily tasks of juggling children’s needs, work pressure, difficult in-laws or too many other demands are taking their toil on your relationship. Maybe there are problems with fidelity, trust, anger or resentment. Perhaps you have separated or are thinking of going your separate ways.

Whatever is happening with you and your partner counselling can provide a space to talk about and resolve areas of difficulty.


There are many other benefits in seeing a therapist. They included;

Discovering a greater sense of self-worth and confidence.
Enhancing your communication skills.
Effectively expressing your needs through clear communication.
Finding joy in life and a sense of inherent health.
Looking for new ways to deal with areas of difficulty with compassion and kindness.
Learning how to befriend difficult emotions so they don't control you.


First Time

It can feel very daunting to contact a therapist for the first time, especially if you don't know what to expect. Because of this I offer all new clients a free initial consultation so that you can come and meet me, see where I work and I can answer any questions you may have.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
