About me

I offer a safe, non judgmental space for you to talk freely and openly about whatever is on your mind. Perhaps you feel overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, unable to cope or stuck. Perhaps you're feeling things need to change and that's why you're seeking counselling. You may want counselling for a specific issue or you may just want a safe space to talk and feel heard, not really knowing what the problem is.

Finding the right counsellor can seem a daunting task and it is important to find someone you feel you click with. Our initial consultation will help you to decide if I could be the right therapist for you. In that initial session we will talk about what you would like to get from therapy and what has led you to look for a therapist. Why not book an initial session with me and see how you get on? There's no obligation to continue if you don't want to.

By providing an empathic, non judgmental environment, I hope to provide you with the opportunity to better understand yourself and work towards bringing about life changes. You have unique experiences, emotions and reactions to events in your life so together we'll look at areas that are causing you difficulty. Sometimes we might look at the past, linking things you previously thought were unconnected. Other times, we may look at unhelpful thinking styles that influence your feelings and behaviour. I will never force you to talk about anything you don't want to talk about although you are free to bring any subject you wish to discuss, without fear of judgment.

I work with individuals from the ages of 18 upwards on either a short term or long term basis, whichever you decide is right for you.

Please take a look at my website to find out more about how I work.
