Key Worker CounsellingMates in Mind

I am an integrative counsellor who will tailor the therapy to suit your unique needs and circumstances with sensitivity and flexibility. I offer open ended and short term counselling depending on your individual needs.

It believe it is important to build a strong, secure and trusting relationship with my clients, without making any assumption or judgements. Together we can work through your concerns and the changes you wish to make in your life. I can help you explore your difficulties and gain a greater understanding of the underlying causes and help you to move forwards in a more positive way.
