About

People at times regard seeking counselling as a weakness, however in my view it actually shows great strength to seek support when you are facing issues in your life. Having the courage to look 'inside yourself' is the first step. Working together, I will be there to provide a safe and confidential environment in which we can explore a way forward together. It is a privilege to have acquired the skills to support people who are facing challenges such as: Relationship issues; Stress; Psychological Trauma and PTSD; Anxiety/Depression; Anger issues; Bereavement & Loss; & Phobias
In my career I have supported many clients who have felt traumatised and unable to see the way forward, but who have managed to work through their issues with the appropriate supporting therapy. My key areas of experience cover the following: Trauma, Relationship issues, & Addiction.
Are you affected by Covid-19? If this is the case and it is causing you anxiety I can offer a 30 minute session which includes relaxation and coping techniques to managing this anxiety. I am able to offer alongside these techniques an extremely effective, non-pharmacological device called Alpha Stim recently featured on BBC1 The Truth about Mental Health
