About me

Well done you! Your life is about to get a whole lot better…You may well have been recommended by a friend, or just stumbled upon The Talking Rooms, but there’s a good chance, you’re looking for some help with how you are feeling, and I’m guessing that you are hopeful that you can find a solution, so that you don’t feel that way anymore. If I’m right, keep reading…

I like to call this YOUR CALL TO ACTION.  If you are feeling stuck and low, and YOUR QUALITY of LIFE is dire. It’s pretty horrible isn’t it?   If you are feeling like life is a bit of a struggle, and your joy is so far off in the horizon, it can all feel a bit hopeless can’t it?

TODAY I WANT YOU TO BRING YOUR FOCUS TO YOU, AND RECOGNISE THIS IS YOUR TIME FOR CHANGE.   Listen to YOUR CALL TO ACTION, and make a change. Give yourself this gift, invest in yourself today. Give yourself the time and commitment to overcome your hurdles, and have the life you want, one were you feel genuine joy and happiness!

A listening ear...
We are all humans, on this beautiful rollercoaster journey called LIFE.  It can be tough, but that’s the deal we make with life. We take the good with the bad and we keep on pushing through… until, we get STUCK. That’s when we need some help, and that’s were we come in!

Firstly let me tell you this. EVERYONE at some point in their life needs some help. Every single man, woman and child. There is NO SHAME IN IT. Let me repeat that.  THERE IS NO SHAME IN IT. You are simply looking to understand yourself better and you want to find a solution to your problem. GOOD FOR YOU! 

My Approach
I offer you an opportunity to explore what’s going on for you, what’s keeping you stuck, and what you want life to be like. This ain’t no happy clappy bulls**t here.   We’re not going to tell you to just think positively and everything will be dandy again. No, we’re gonna look at the garden and take the weeds out from the roots, so that it can flourish once again.

I am a fully qualified cognitive behavioural therapist, and integrate the core principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Positive Psychology, and an absolute abundance of therapies to give you the tailored experience you need to smash out of this block and get UNSTUCK!

I have overcame challenging life circumstances; from death, cancer, marital breakdowns and then some.  I've sat in the the seat you WILL SIT IN. I know how scary this is. But what’s the alternative, just stay and live in your own tormented mind? Trust me, when I say, that you are going to come out the other side of this, and you are going to ROCK life like never before.   What have you got to lose?

MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

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.
