About me

There are times in our lives when we find it difficult to make sense of why we feel anxious, troubled or distressed.

As an Integrative Counsellor I use a variety of counselling approaches which are determined by you and your presenting problem.  I will provide you with a safe, non judgemental environment where we can explore together the issues or difficulties you may be facing.  Your counselling sessions are an opportunity not only to understand why things are difficult, sad or painful but also for personal growth so that you can make positive changes in your life.  The counselling service I am offering is professional, confidential and discrete.

The initial appointment gives you the opportunity to meet me, to talk about what has prompted you to seek counselling and to decide if counselling is for you.  It is the time to ask any questions you may have about the service I am offering.

Sessions will be 50 minutes long.  We may work on a long or short term basis.

Please feel free to contact me by telephone or email.  I will be happy to talk to you about my therapeutic approach and answer any questions you may have.
