Thinking of therapy

I understand that deciding to seek therapy can be a daunting prospect. Yet therapy can also be an immensely rewarding and beneficial experience to help you understand your difficulties and facilitate change. Like many, you may not be sure what sort of support you need. If you are considering counselling or psychotherapy and would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

My work is with adults of all ages, offering short-term counselling and longer term, open-ended psychotherapy. I have many years experience of providing counselling and psychotherapy in different organisational settings.

I am experienced in working with:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Destructive patterns of behaviour and relationship problems
  • Feelings of emptiness and isolation
  • Difficulties at work or studying
  • Major life transitions and sudden change
  • Health problems
  • Loss and bereavement

This list is not exhaustive, if you think I may be able to help, please contact me.
