I provide an independent counselling and psychotherapy service for adults and adolescents. Alongside my independent practice, I work as a psychotherapist for the NHS. My experience also includes working in education counselling services and voluntary organisations providing therapy for adults and young people. I can offer extensive experience in working with a wide variety of emotional difficulties, including :
- depression, low self esteem, anxiety, relationship difficulties and identity issues;
- problems due to difficult past experiences such as trauma, abuse and relationship difficulties;
- loss and bereavement;
- self harm;
- a more general sense of dissatisfaction or confusion;
- help with promoting personal development - sessions provide a deep exploration of past and current experiences and emotions in order to develop greater insight and self knowledge.
I offer :
- psychotherapy sessions - once weekly or more if needed. This work tends to be longer term;
- counselling on a shorter term basis;
- a reduced fee initial consultation to help you decide whether I can be of help.
