About me

Are you looking for help coping with the stresses and strains of life?  Are you suffering with symptoms of anxiety and/or depression?  I offer a solution-focussed approach to enable clients to work through issues and feel better about themselves.

I provide a safe space so you can talk about things you might not feel comfortable talking about with anyone else.

Together, we will look at ways you can develop your own inner resources to manage your life more easily.

It is important to me that you to feel valued and fully accepted for who you are.

Over the years, I have worked with both men and women, and I can support you with issues such as depression, anxiety, work-based stress, bereavement, low self-esteem, relationship problems and family issues.

My work draws from a number of therapeutic approaches, which include:

·         Person Centred Therapy

·         Solution-focussed Brief Therapy

·         Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

What to expect in your first session?

The first session is an opportunity for you to tell me about the issues you are struggling with. Some clients worry about whether they will be able to communicate their difficulties to a new counsellor.  I am good at asking the right questions to help you talk about yourself and to feel at ease.  To begin with I may ask you questions about why you sought therapy, your current situation and your family history.  I will also give you information about the terms of my service.

On-going Sessions

I provide short-term and long-term counselling.  This means that you can choose to be allocated a set amount of solution focussed sessions with specific goals in mind, or you may choose to engage in counselling for as long as you require.  I usually try to arrange appointments at the same time each week.

Interested?

Contact me today by phone or email.  I am happy to answer any questions you may have about counselling with me before you book a session.

I work in rooms that are central and accessible.
