About me

*** Please note: despite the current COVID-19 restrictions,  I am still available for remote sessions via Zoom, Skype or Telephone if you prefer ***

We all have times when life is difficult and doesn't seem to be going our way. There is no shame at these times in finding help from someone. It takes strength and courage to ask someone for that help and fortunately we live in times when there is much less stigma in seeking such help. I can provide you with that support ... there is no need to suffer alone.

I use a person centred, humanistic approach. This is a non-directive method whereby the therapist is guided by you, the client, as to what issues you wish to discuss.  The aim of this is to enable me to tailor my service to your specific needs, employing an integrative approach using a variety of therapies, such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Transactional Analysis or Hypnotherapy, to help you make the changes that you want to make to your life. I will support you as you rid yourself of any damaging learned behaviours that you may have acquired. The good news for any client is that learned behaviours can be unlearned.

My own specialities are bereavement counselling, counselling for anxiety or stress and counselling for depression. However I have been trained in counselling for many issues as follows:-

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Self Confidence
  • Relationship Issues
  • Bereavement
  • General Unhappiness
  • Financial Issues
  • Assertiveness/Self-Confidence
  • Abuse - Physical, Emotional, Sexual
  • Depression
  • Divorce & Separation
  • Phobias
  • Self Harm
  • Suicidal Feelings
  • Trauma
