I am a down-to-earth counsellor, psychotherapist and hypnotherapist. I work with these therapies in an integrative way. You will be warmly welcomed and sincerely heard. You may want a life where it is easier to deal with painful events from your past or where you can cope with the difficulties of day-to-day life more effectively. Or perhaps, feel less daunted by the future. I want to help you move forwards and feel happier.

I have had a number of difficult life experiences and genuinely believe in the benefits that finding the right counsellor can bring you. In counselling, the therapeutic relationship between the client and the counsellor is key to helping you activate the changes you want to make in your life. I want to help you feel empowered and equipped with strategies to use between the therapy sessions and beyond our last session – into your new life.
I work with a range of common issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, loss, trauma, relationship issues, age related issues, developing self-esteem, breaking unhelpful habits and phobias amongst many others. You will be supported in a safe space to confidentially explore your issues.
I hold a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling Practice and a Certificate in Hypnotherapy and Counselling Skills. I can also incorporate approaches from cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT). My training is grounded in Person Centred counselling, allowing me to draw on Humanist and Psychodynamic modalities but I can also work in an integrative way. This means I offer you flexibility and choice. Your treatment plan may involve working with just one of these therapeutic approaches or combining them in a powerful, integrative way. We can discuss what is the best approach for you and your goals.
The number of sessions needed varies from person to person depending on the presenting issue. We can discuss this openly - your therapy will always remain within your budget and control. We will work together, to help you explore the way you feel now and help you move towards a more positive, hopeful future.
