About me

At times, life has a habit of getting a little 'on top of' us all and it's at these times when working and talking it through, with a supportive professional in a private and non-judgemental space is key to developing the resilience and skills to bring your life back into balance again.  Myself and my team of qualified counsellors offer a collective of 50 years+ of combined therapeutic experience integrative counselling, hypnotherapy, NLP and EMDR. We are neurodiversity training and have specialist training in counselling and coaching for ADHD and ASD for adults and young people.  Some of the areas we support are anxiety, panic, low mood and depression, fears, phobia's, loss, bereavement, stress and anger, executive functioning compromise and emotional dysregulation. We also offer a free 15 minute introductory telephone call to answer any initial questions you might have.  Our main counselling room is in Reading town centre with other premises in Burghfield, Basingstoke, Thatcham, Earley and Henley.
