CoronaVirus update


In these unsettling and disturbing times it is even more important to reach out to each other and make sure we  find help when we need it. Instead of face to face sessions I can offer Skype or WhatsApp video calls or telephone sessions as well. If you need to talk to someone please do not suffer in silence. 

About me

working with me

How I work

I work in an integrative way using a  Pyschodynamic/Person Centred approach  tailored to your needs. I also use some  ideas from TA and Gestalt theory to enhance the work undertaken. I have worked with a wide range of people from 12 - 70 with many different reasons for coming to counselling. Depression, loss and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counselling we can explore these feelings and begin to help you recover your motivation, perspective and the joy you once had in your life. 


Overcoming Past Trauma

You may be experiencing symptoms from past traumatic and painful events in your life which are impacting you in the present. Anxiety, fear and feelings of hopelessness maybe holding you back and preventing you from moving forward. Counselling can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing. 


Our Relationship

I believe it is the relationship we build between us that can help you on your journey, but it is the relationship you build with yourself that is the most important. Through counselling I would like to help you build that relationship.

Find yourself again

Find yourself again

Counselling is a talking therapy to help you rediscover yourself again.  As your counsellor I can help you find the belief in yourself you may have lost and in the process talk myself out of a job.
