Welcome to my website
… worried about a relationship or work?
… feeling anxious or depressed?
… struggling with a bereavement or loss of some kind?
Perhaps there's no time when you can stop...., take a breath...., look around.… reflect on and absorb what's going on in your life.
No space to pause.... gather yourself together in one place.... and start to make sense of things....
Maybe you've been soldiering on for some time and, underneath it all, feeling anxious or unhappy and uncertain what to do or who to turn to. Talking with friends or family is often useful and all you need most of the time, but sometimes that may not be easy or possible. This is when meeting, in confidence, with a psychotherapist or counsellor can help - whether it’s something recent that's upset you or you've been worried or unhappy for a while.
Talking things through with a professional, someone outside your social group and family, can offer a fresh perspective and insight to whatever is troubling you. It gives you a dedicated time and space where you can speak freely, will be listened to without judgment, taken seriously and encouraged to reflect on things in more depth. This can help you focus and find clarity, understand yourself better, re-gain your balance and discover your best way forward.

I believe we have far more emotional and psychological resources than we think we do and that the experience of feeling listened to and understood by someone else can help us tap into and realise more of our inner strengths.
We're all unique and shaped by our particular life history so I tailor how I work according to the changing needs of each individual.
Providing a safe ground for you to stand on I offer both support and challenge and will:
Counselling & Psychotherapy give you space where you can gain a deeper and broader understanding of yourself.
