About me

Counselling, Life Coaching, and/or Analytical Hypnotherapy can help to address the difficult areas of your life.

These might include loss and change e.g. the end of a relationship, unresolved bereavement/grief, career change, health change etc, anxiety/panic/phobias, depression, anger, stress, low self worth/confidence or self esteem, relationship difficulties, work / life imbalance etc, leaving you feeling stuck and dissatisfied with your life.

Or perhaps you want to change unhelpful and unhealthy habits such as smoking, over eating or the over use of alcohol? Or maybe you simply want to enhance your sporting or artistic performance?

Whilst family and friends can be a great source of support it’s not always easy to confide in those closest to you. At times, talking to someone who is not personally involved can make a big difference.

As a highly qualified, experienced and accredited professional therapist, I will give you an opportunity to think about and talk about yourself in a way that you can’t do with family or friends. You will be given a time and a place that is just for you to talk about the things that are troubling you and preventing you from enjoying your life.

I will help you to overcome blocks and problems that are holding you back, improve your relationships, build your confidence and self esteem and enjoy an overall sense of well being and contentment in all aspects of your life.

You can be confident that you will be listened to without judgement and given help to make the changes you want to make to your life and improve your well being.

Although I work with adults, I am also highly experienced and qualified to counsel children (age 8 years and upwards) and young people. I am a member of the PVG Scheme (membership number 1406 0378 3360 0311) in respect of regulated work with children and adults.
