About

People often first come for counselling when they begin to experience symptoms of low mood and anxiety such as disturbed sleep, low levels of motivation and energy, or increased rates of irritability and tension which just don’t seem to shift. These symptoms could be related to a significantly upsetting event, or they might be linked to a background of adversities and difficulties. Either way, you might be hoping to improve your mood and to reduce feelings of anxiety or panic, to regain a sense of confidence and self esteem, and to feel more energised and motivated. People often say they want to get back to their old self again.
I have been counselling in the NHS for 13 years, helping people recover from the symptoms of low mood and anxiety which can be caused by any number of issues. My approach is to listen deeply to what you want to talk about and to offer very thoughtful and sensitive responses to try to fully understand and help you explore a way through for yourself.
I work hard to create a space which is free from judgement or evaluation, where you can feel safe to explore whatever it is that you need to look at in therapy. I aim to be real with you, down to earth, open and honest and to value you exactly as you are. I’m interested to hear about what’s happened to you, rather than “what’s wrong with you?”
