About me

Firstly, I'd like to say well done for taking the big step in asking for help. This can be daunting and take a lot of courage.

We all have difficulties in life, but sometimes there is a need to go outside of family and friends and work through our thoughts, feelings and behaviours with someone impartial. I offer a safe, confidential place for you to explore these.

Counselling is not a magic wand, however in my experience it can give you insight into who you really are and promote personal well-being.

I am an integrative psychotherapist which means my approach incorporates looking at how the past influences our present feelings and behaviours whilst also working on a cognitive level to explore practical ways of dealing with anxiety and depression.
