About

These post-pandemic times are challenging for us all and our mental health is perhaps more important than ever. I know from my own personal experience, that counselling can make us more aware of our issues and so make possible the kinds of personal changes that we want to see. As a counsellor, my priority is to offer a safe and confidential space where you can talk and be heard, without judgement of any kind. By working together, it is possible to reach a place of less fear, anxiety and sadness making possible a life with more hope, gratitude and yes - happiness.
As an integrative counsellor, I use a variety of approaches depending upon the individual's issues. These include family systems, humanistic counselling and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy. Mindfulness is an evidence-based approach that has been shown to reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression. Mindfulness enhances focus and emotional resilience.
We all need outside help at some stage in our lives. Some 1 in 4 of us will encounter mental health issues. I believe that we are all different and so have unique issues. The first stage in counselling is focused on finding out more about your own issues. I am a good listener and my guidance will always be compassionate. Every journey begins with one step.
