Are you finding our modern world over-whelming and emotionally demanding? Have you lost your way and need to re-discover who you are and what you want from life? Are you suffering with mental health issues, such as stress, general anxiety, social anxiety, depression, loss or bereavement, low self-confidence, or just feeling down for some unknown reason? If this sounds like you, then I can help you and will offer you therapy suited to your needs.

How we work together
After an initial assessment, through discussion, I will help you gain an understanding of yourself, your situation, what is important to you and what you want from your life. Together we will change any negative thought patterns and I will assist you in aquiring self-help skills to aid your healing process through and beyond therapy. I offer you all this in the hope that your therapy would lead you to live your life more hamoniously. I would be with you every step of the way as you grow, helping you choose your path and work towards your goals.

I will offer you a safe confidential space where you can talk openly. A place that you can express your feelings and work through your problems knowing you will not be judged or criticised, but are listened to with empathic understanding. I would use an integrative approach and work at your own pace, with sessions ongoing for as long as you require them. 

I am passionate about people and the well-being of others. Counselling helped me get through a difficult part of my life and gave me an understanding of myself and the self-help skills I needed, which I have continued to use to this day. With a desire to help others I trained as a counsellor and have consequently helped many people over the years who were experiencing mental health difficulties.

N.B. I have had both of my Covid vaccinations and my booster.
