Counselling is for anyone and everyone. You might have a specific thing you want to work on – pain from your past or worries about the future. Or you might have a general sense that something is stuck, that this isn’t quite the life you’d expected. ​Counselling offers the opportunity for us to develop a creative partnership , where we can work together to explore both what is troubling you and your potential in life and to support you to find a sense of freedom to be your true self. Counselling is not an easy option, it can uncover painful feelings, but it can be a step on the way to feeling better and more at peace with yourself.

If you're considering counselling, you're probably experiencing some emotional challenges. Perhaps you’re feeling stuck or your struggling with loss, relationships and uncertainty. Battling feelings of depression, worthlessness, anxiety, or stress. Maybe using now unhelpful coping strategies like food, drugs and alcohol to manage. I offer confidential private one to one counselling with adults of all ages on a variety of issues and have highly specialist knowledge and experience in both mental health and substance misuse.

If you are interested in counselling sessions outdoors, then you may find talkwalkrun works for you. It can take the form of 'walk and talk' or, for those who would like to include some running, that is also an option. As a qualified counsellor I love combining being outside and moving with enabling people to find a way through difficulties in life. My counselling approach is an integrative one, although I place an emphasis on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). In particular I incorporate ideas from the most recent model which has been shown to have rapid and long-lasting impact for people suffering with anxiety or depression.
