I offer counselling for anyone in need of help with emotional, personal or relationship problems. I provide a safe and confidential environment where you can explore your thoughts and feelings. I can offer short or long-term therapies, and I tailor my theoretical approach to the needs of individual clients or couples.
I work with adults suffering from stress, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, low self esteem, lack of self confidence, psychosomatic illness and insomnia. I help those facing major problems including bereavement, marital difficulties and personal challenges.
I have had extensive experience of supporting clients with suicidal tendencies and/or diagnosed mental health problems, including those under the care of a psychiatrist. I have a particular interest in providing tailored assistance for those with learning difficulties.
Having lived and worked in ten countries over the years, I am very familiar with varied cultures and with issues derived from diversity.
I can meet clients in a room that I rent near to Kingston Station.
