I am an experienced and qualified therapist/counsellor who knows from my own journey into therapy how initially daunting yet hugely beneficial it can be. Therefore, I meet each client with empathy, understanding and genuineness to help you to face the challenges of life. Firstly, you can expect a warm and friendly approach where you will be heard and find relational support. I will seek to understand what you would like to gain from counselling and we will work together to find the best way of achieving that. Together we will embark on a journey towards healing, growth and positive change, focusing on your needs and challenges.
I specialise in addiction, whether that be alcohol, drugs, relationships or gambling. There is a way out! I provide support for families and who are affected by those suffering with addiction. I help clients through a range of issues including anxiety and depression, stress and burnout, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, life transitions, divorce.
You can expect a warm and friendly approach where you will be heard and find relational support. I believe in the healing power of the therapeutic relationship. I offer a safe and secure environment where you are met without judgment so that you can freely explore and discover yourself, process feelings and emotions and begin to understand yourself better.
