You are brave and have identified that you need some support at this very turbulent time. When a crisis hits, a future that was once clear can become confusing and scary. Life is now very complicated and can leave us with feelings of anxiety, stress and depression. These negative feelings can make life overwhelming. Sometimes it is helpful to talk to a person not directly involved in order to gain clarity and insight.
I am warm and friendly and offer clients a safe space to explore their thoughts and feelings in a non judgemental way. Life can get in the way. Often there doesn’t seem time to absorb what has happened or how it has affected us.. Dealing with anxiety, stress, grief and loss are always hard, dealing with them in a pandemic is even harder. Finding the right counsellor with whom you feel safe secure and listen to is the most important ingredient to enable you to explore and manage overwhelming thoughts and feelings. I can help you face these feelings.

Hello, thank you for looking at my profile. I am a qualified counsellor, hypnotherapist and nurse with over 20 years experience in the medical profession. Feeling the pressure of life at the moment? I can help you overcome whatever your issue may be and accomplish your goals and make you feel better mentally and physically and also make positive changes.
Are you struggling with the stresses and strains that family, friendship, and/ or work life can bring and unsure what to do? Life is not always easy or straightforward, our lives can become challenging at times, causing us to feel overwhelmed with an array of complex emotions which can have an impact on our daily lives. Very often we don’t have someone that we can completely share our innermost thoughts and feelings with so having someone who is a trained professional, allows the opportunity to open up and confide in. I trust that I am able to provide a safe, non-judgemental space to work collaboratively with you.
As a Counsellor and Life Coach it is my sincere intention to offer you a safe and confidential space, where you will be able to explore all your dissatisfactions and concerns and help and support you towards making the changes you would like in your life. So if you are tired of the constant negative and anxious chatter in your head, feeling totally unmotivated and disappointed with life and feel this is having a very negative impact on your relationships, working life and life generally. Then don't continue to despair and find the solutions you need to improve your life and your current situation.
I understand it is sometimes hard to make the step towards having therapy. If you are at a point in your life where you need support or guidance in bringing about change, I offer a non judgemental, confidential, compassionate and warm space. Through working together to resolve difficult experiences in various ways, you will begin to see life from a different perspective. This will enable you to understand yourself better, gain more confidence and calm anxieties and depression. I keep up to date with various courses's and reading for continuing professional development. I also work with the Police Firearms Officers Association.
