About me

Are life's pressures and anxieties proving too difficult for you to cope with?

As an experienced Counsellor and Cognitive Behavioural Therapist I work with individuals and couples providing a caring, safe and non-judgemental environment in which to explore your difficult feelings and inner conflicts enabling you to enhance your life and live it more fully.

I am a fully qualified counsellor and registered member of the British Association of Counsellor and Psychotherapists (BACP).

I have extensive experience working with individuals and couples from diverse backgrounds. I work on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period.

As a practising psychodynamic counsellor and CBT therapist, I use the approach that I feel best suits the individual. This flexibility offers clients the opportunity to optimise the positive beliefs from each.

My aim is to provide a caring, safe and enriching therapeutic relationship in which clients can explore their difficulties and inner conflicts.

I have worked extensively with clients who have experienced difficult childhoods and with those suffering from anxiety, depression and low self esteem.

Counselling/therapy is a gentle way to learn how to take charge of one's life. It offers space to explore new ways to be in a safe environment with an experienced practitioner.

For many years I worked at Gam Care counselling compulsive gamblers and their families.
