Sometimes we can feel lost, anxious or overwhelmed by life and it can help to talk it over with a trained counsellor. I offer a safe and confidential space to help you to make sense of it. Contact me for an introductory session for £30 with no obligation to continue.
I am an experienced counsellor with a special interest in working with adults with stress, anxiety, low mood and loss of self confidence; in particular relating to bereavement, relationship difficulties, trauma, life threatening or chronic disease, aging, sexual abuse and identity.
I have a professional interest in the long term effects of work related stress or 'burn out'.
I am based at Royston Complementary Health Centre, and in Hitchin, at LEAF Health on Bancroft.
