About me

Passionate about helping you to overcome the obstacles and challenges in your life and empowering you to recover your balance and take control of your present. Your past does not define you and I want to help you to redesign your future.


My Approach
Emotions and events can seem overwhelming, bullying in work and outside can make you feel powerless, being a carer to elderly parents or disabled children can make you frustrated and depressed, you could be facing a major transition in your life or your loved ones’ or you can feel stuck and unable to see a way forward.
In counselling I can arm you with simple and powerful tools that you can use in daily life to help with these challenging situations and emotions. Collaboratively we will look at your core beliefs, for example, “I’m not good enough” or “I’ll never get what I want in life” or “I’m a failure” and learn to change these to more supportive beliefs.
Using mindfulness techniques, creative therapies and CBT in a Personalised and Person Centred way, I can help you can gain clarity and the ability to usefully harness your emotional responses in a useful way, rather than feeling swamped by them. This will enable you to move through life with more ease and joy.
I recognise that each person is unique and experiences life differently, my approach is personal and tailored to you, confidential and non-judgemental. I combine a range of tools and proven techniques to support you in your journey, walking with you and empowering you to be the best you.

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.
