I am currently able to offer both remote and face-to-face therapy, assessed on an individual basis and in line with
government guidance. Please see our risk assessment for more details on face-to-face therapy.
People often don’t know exactly what is wrong when they come to me for therapy but know things feel too much and they are struggling to cope.
Some people feel they have tried everything they can think of to fix things and nothing seems to work. In therapy we can explore options together that can lead to positive changes.
Others might recognise that past events influence how they are coping with life today and need help to manage this.
Often people recognise they have been feeling low or anxious for a while and have decided they want to get some help in overcoming this.
Dreadful things can happen that totally derail us. With counselling I can help you make sense of the world again and support you getting back on track.
I am always happy to answer queries by email or arrange a time to talk on the phone before booking an appointment.
Psychotherapy and Counselling are umbrella terms that cover a range of talking therapies. Therapy is a confidential, collaborative process and we would work together to reach your own individual goals.
I draw from a range of therapeutic approaches and mindfulness practice to suit your specific needs.
I can work with you over a short or longer term, dependent on your distinct requirements, to bring about change and enhance your general wellbeing.
Therapy is a learning process and afterwards clients inevitably have an improved knowledge of themselves and better coping mechanisms; these can continue to be advantageous when dealing with challenges later in life.
