About

I am a qualified, experienced counsellor and have trained in various approaches to therapy. This means that I use a range of counselling theories and methods within my work, ensuring that I work with you to tailor our sessions to suit your needs. I cover all areas of counselling, including, addiction, anxiety, depression, stress, couples/ relationships. I also specialise in working with trauma, addiction and alcoholism, having worked in the field of addiction for over 10 years. My current mentor is Rachel Fairhurst who is my supervisor and trainer.  Within this model of working i have been trained in trauma focussed therapy.
Through counselling I can help you to work through psychological and emotional problems, finding ways to manage difficult situations in your life and improve your sense of well-being. It may be a specific situation that brings you to counselling, a sad or troubling event, or it may be that life seems overwhelmingly difficult and out of control. I can help.
Counselling allows people to discuss their problems and any difficult feelings they encounter in a safe, confidential environment. The term can mean different things to different people, but in general it is a process people seek when they want to change something in their lives or simply explore their thoughts and feelings in more depth.
