Are you struggling with the pressures of life?

Life can have many anxieties and you may not know who to turn to for support. I offer a relaxed and confidential space in which we can explore what life changes you would like to make. As an experienced Counsellor I can walk this path alongside you, offering support along the way, listening to you without any judgement, all of which can lead to making positive changes in your life. I am able to offer Counselling for adults, couples and children aged 5 and upwards. Home or work place visits may also be arranged.

I have extensive training and experience of supporting individuals with a variety of mental health and wellbeing difficulties including but not limited to, Depression, Anxiety, Low-self-esteem, OCD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Self-Harm, Suicidal thoughts, Domestic Abuse, Sexual, Emotional and Physical Abuse. I also have experience of working with children on the Autism Spectrum.

I offer Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) informed therapy. According to CBT research, individuals who are offered CBT remain well for longer. CBT focuses on challenging unhelpful thoughts and behaviours. I also offer Person-centred Counselling, which was founded by Carl Rogers. It is a non-directive talking therapy. I will provide you with a non-judgemental, empathetic environment and support you so that you feel empowered to find your own solutions and make appropriate changes in your life.

I also offer Rewind Therapy; according to the Intenational Association for Rewind Trauma Therapy Rewind Therapy has  become internationally recognised as indispensable to treat PTSD, anxiety and phobias and may provide closure". ​​​​​​​
