About

Hi. I work with individuals and couples specialising in anxiety, assertiveness, anger management and working with couples who seek to rediscover their emotional bond through better communication and rebuilding trust. I offer you 19 yrs of experience. Are you just looking to offload an emotional burden, deal with a loss, change negative ways of thinking, deal with stress, anxiety and depression, be less angry, or need help with relationships and how to communicate better? Or maybe you want to rebuild confidence and gain more self esteem. I would be glad to help.
I use varied counselling styles including Person-Centred and CBT. Also i use an assertiveness coaching approach which helps people in " toxic relationships" where they need to put boundaries in place, helping them become less angry or for others less passive. I work with couples using a "emotionally focused style" which has proven to be very successful!
Most people find it liberating to talk to someone outside of their immediate circle who really wants to listen, enter into their world and not judge them. I am someone who will seek to understand, challenge you gently and work with you to help you find solutions to move forward in a realistic way. I would be glad to share your story.
