If you are feeling as though something is getting in the way of your happiness, success and fulfilment we can speak about how we might work together towards a solution to these struggles..

With 30 years of experience as a BACP registered therapist, I provide authentic, compassionate and insightful support. You may be feeling unhappy and 'stuck' at this point in your life, or may be confused about your life in general. Our past has influenced our present but does not have to determine our future. With support, we can move on and understand ourselves and this is why talking therapy is so useful. We all experience difficulties in life and although you may feel alone, be assured that others have felt the way that you do. I am aware that finding the right therapist can be confusing, hence my low-cost introductory session

In these cases, working with an experienced professional like myself through therapeutic coaching and counselling can be a wonderful tool to help us heal and access the inner resources we need to let go of the past and create a new future for ourselves.

The last year has hit many of us hard. The most recent lockdown has particularly caused impact in many ways to many of my clients. Whether it has intensified previous issues, or caused new issues that have had a real effect on life in so many ways; anxiety, depression, low motivation, low self esteem, loneliness, grief, finances, confusion, abuse, burn-out, overwhelm, it is completely normal to be feeling that way. Not nice. But normal considering all you have going on and have been through. So many clients feel relief in just talking about what is happening for them. I offer a safe and non-judgemental space that is uniquely yours.
