About me

We can all be challenged or go through difficulties in our lives. At times we may become stressed, experience anxiety, feel profound unhappiness or suffer a great loss.

Counselling provides a protected and boundaried space in which to bring and work through these experiences. In a counselling session, you will be heard, by a trained professional, in strict confidence.

I am a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor. I work with clients, ranging from young adults to retirees, for all general needs counselling. I work online and also face-to-face. I work long term but can also offer time limited ("solution Focused") support, if needed. I specialise in loss and bereavement, anxiety and stress, self esteem and depression but offer therapeutic support for most other issues.

Types of Therapy Support Offered

Open Ended Therapy / Longer Term Therapy - Online and Face-to-Face:

Long-term or open-ended therapy is like consistently going to the gym for your mind and emotions. By progressing at your own pace, it offers the opportunity to engage in a deeper and more meaningful exploration of personal issues. Just as regular gym attendance  maintains and transforms the body, committing to ongoing therapy allows individuals to build emotional growth, develop coping mechanisms, and achieve lasting positive change. This steady journey towards self discovery contributes to enduring emotional well-being and mental health.

Solution Focused / Time Limited Therapy  - Online and Face-to-Face:

Recognising individual needs, Time-Limited Therapy can also be offered for those seeking focused solutions within a more condensed time-frame. However it is important to note that while this approach can efficiently address immediate concerns, its scope may not match the depth and breadth of long-term therapy. Whether you prefer in-depth exploration or focused support for immediate concerns, therapy can be tailored to align with your journey and preferences.
