About me

For many people, just getting this far in pursuing counselling is hard. If that's you, then well done.

There is still a strongly held belief that we should "suffer in silence" … that it’s not OK to talk about emotions, about problems in relationships, or about those moments when we just feel overwhelmed. Fortunately, that idea is slowly being eroded, but it’s still there, particularly (though not exclusively) with men. I have sat with many clients who end up in counselling as a last resort, not really believing it can help them. I have sat with clients who have dared me to show them what difference talking can make, “ when life feels out of control and you end up in the same place over and over again”. But there are thousands of men and women out there who know talking can make all the difference; it has helped them to live life free and unburdened, and for some, it has helped them to go on living at all.

Counselling isn’t easy, it takes commitment and courage, but if you’ve been wondering whether there’s any point in talking, then contact me. The initial appointment is free, and we can explore whether counselling is for you.
