About me

Are you experiencing anxiety, depression, stress, relationship issues, panic attacks, challenging life transitions, loss? Do you feel stuck? Do you have unresolved family issues? Talking to a counsellor can help.

I am highly empathic and take a gentle, non-judgemental but realistic approach to help people work through the difficulties they might have. At this difficult and uncertain times due to COVID I am offering counselling sessions online and over the phone to help you feel psychologically well.

I use an Integrative approach, including CBT, Person Centred and Psychodynamic, this enables me to work with most individual needs.

My aim is to establish a good working relationship with you and support you through your explorations to help you gain a deeper understanding of your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, encouraging you and helping you to deal with your concerns.

I offer short term and long term therapy working around clients individual needs.

I offer reduced rates to NHS staff. I have day time as well as evening appointments available, so please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to book an initial consultation.
