Hello and welcome to my page.
I offer counselling and therapy to adults, young people and children (from 4 years of age) who are experiencing a range of difficulties including anxiety, stress, depression, relationship problems.
Counselling and Therapy for Adults.
If we are feeling anxious or depressed, we may find that we don't feel able to spend time with the people who are important to us, our working life may become affected. We may start to look for different coping mechanisms to help us with this difficult time. These can help us feel better in the short term but can lead to ongoing problems in the future. Asking for help from family and friends may not always seem to be the right thing to do. We may feel embarrassed about speaking out or do not want to worry the people who are important to us.
I have 15 years of experience working in NHS mental health services supporting adults who are experiencing a wide range of difficulties including depression, anxiety and relationship problems. I am able to draw upon this and use my skills as a cognitive behaviour therapist, if needed, to help you identify the thoughts that are affecting your feelings and behaviour. We can then explore together the best approach to help you make the changes you feel you need.
Counselling and therapy for children and young people.
Children and young people, do not always have words to clearly express their feelings. They often show us their distress through how they behave. They may become angry, upset, or quiet and withdrawn, they may be having problems with friendships and family relationships. Children and young people can also struggle with their schoolwork as they are preoccupied with their difficulties their concentration becomes affected and their sleep disrupted.
I am a fully accredited Arts Psychotherapist which means I can use a range of creative activities to help the children and young people I work with, to explore and express their feelings. I am also able to explore practical strategies that may be used to help manage different feelings and situations.
I can be contacted by phone to discuss your needs before we arrange an initial consultation meeting. Alternatively, you can email me or use the contact me page on my website to arrange a convenient time to meet. I am able to offer short and longer term support and can speak with you about this when we meet together. I look forward to hearing from you.
