About me

Everybody has problems so why should you go for counselling? Problems are part of everyday life, we all encounter them and fortunately we are able to solve them the majority of the time without any intervention.

Counselling may be beneficial to you if problems become all consuming and start to affect your personal happiness, perhaps take up a high percentage of your thinking time or in fact prevent you from doing day to day things. Today's fast pace of life does not always offer time to reflect on how we are feeling or help us understand why we become unhappy, low in mood and no longer enjoy life.

Counselling does not take away your problems but can help you cope differently with them. It gives you the chance to talk in confidence outwith family and friends.

My approach is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, it looks at how your thinking influences your feelings, and in turn your behaviour and choices in life. I became interested in counselling when I trained as an RMN in 1987. I worked as a nurse therapist within the NHS for several years. I eventually left nursing in 2005 and trained as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist.

I have worked with clients who have had a wide range of difficulties such as anxiety, phobias, stress, depression, eating disorders, relationship / sexual problems, abuse, (sexual, emotional and physical) low confidence and self esteem.

I am happy to have an informal chat should you wish any further information about myself or the service that I offer.

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.
