Are you facing challenges that life often throws our way but finding it difficult to work through them, or feel that something isn’t quite right and feel overwhelmed all of the time? Are you looking to make changes in your life but are not sure where to start, or even how to start either in your personal or professional life?

At some point we all struggle with concerns or troubles that may inhibit our happiness and wellbeing.

We all need help from time to time in our busy hectic lives and that’s ok. All too often we struggle to know who to ask for help as everyone else seems to have their own problems and we feel guilty reaching out as we don’t like to feel like a burden, so we are left feeling alone and isolated not knowing where to turn.

Therapy provides you with a safe place to explore your situation in a safe, supportive and confidential environment with someone who can empathise, understand your situation and help guide you to solutions, new ways of thinking, or just give you space to explore your thoughts and feelings.

I help clients see things in a different way and help them make sense of what is happening in their world, teaching them useful tools to help them manage stress, anxiety, depression or simply to help them build confidence or self belief in themselves as a person.

I spent many years in a stressful corporate environment and faced many of my own personal challenges such as stress/anxiety, lack of confidence and self esteem as a result of workplace bullying. Seeking counselling at the time offered me a lifeline and a safe space for me to talk about my challenges and begin to feel good about myself again.

It's really important that you feel comfortable with working with me, therefore I offer a 20 minute no obligation consultation to see how I may be help to help.
