Whatever your reason for seeking counselling; abuse, anxiety, overthinking, self-esteem, work or relationship issues, to name but a few, you're probably looking for something to change. Counselling offers you a different kind of relationship, one where you can open up, explore and reassess current or historic issues which may be holding you back. With greater understanding comes greater resilience and self-empowerment, which can enable you to make the changes you want in order to enjoy your life more fully. That life can be hard is a fact. That we have to face challenging times alone is not. Get in touch and start that change!

It's tough opening up to someone but we, via the therapeutical alliance, can create a safe space of trust where there is confidentiality, no judgment and that the client feels comfortable sharing. Here are some testimonials from previous clients for you to ponder: Social anxiety- My gran nearly fainted when she saw me ask someone who works in a shop a question, something I've never done in my life before. Grief- My therapist has helped me as I was feeling lonely and it cheered me and made me realise that I do have a future by myself with friends and family to support me. Low self esteem - I've realised I'm stronger than I thought.

There are many reasons why someone will seek counselling. Major life changes, even positive ones, can disrupt the balance of everyday life and impact our mental health. Traumas and experiences from our past can intrude on our peace of mind in the present. Bereavement and loss, illness and disability, relationship and work issues can affect our ability to function. Sometimes it feels like we have limited choices and we are unsure of where to turn to for support. Person-centred counselling is a safe and confidential space where you can be yourself and share what is troubling you.

Are you living with the worry and uncertainty that a cancer diagnosis brings? Or maybe you are struggling to cope with an incurable cancer, fearful of the future. You may be trying to rebuild your life after cancer but feel lost or isolated. If this is you or someone close then I can help. Entering the cancer world can feel like being dropped on another planet without a map. You don’t want to be there, and you can't speak the language. As a cancer nurse and counsellor I have supported many people and their loved ones, through the pain of diagnosis, treatment, life after cancer and sadly sometimes their grief, and I can help you.

I could say a lot about my specific qualifications and the type of therapy I offer, but honestly, I believe all types of therapy can work. The most important factor on your journey I believe, is the therapeutic relationship you have with your therapist. If you feel you can really trust and open up to your therapist, then your journey of self discovery and healing can truly begin. So please take time to read about me and go with what your gut tells you (its normally right!) I specialise in working with adults & young people experiencing anxiety/low mood, self esteem issues, and also survivors of abuse, emotional or physical.

I work with clients with a wide range of presenting issues, from low self esteem and relationship problems, to survivors of sexual abuse/traumas.
I believe that the most important relationship we will have over our lifetime is the relationship that we have with ourselves. Throughout our lives we can come to conclusions about ourselves and others that cause us to feel insecure with who we are and around others. My job as a therapist and life coach is to provide a talking space for you to figure out what is holding you back from achieving the relationships and lifestyle you deserve. The more we understand who we really are, the easier it becomes to truly and deliberately create the life we desire.

I am a qualified Counsellor and Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, a member of the BABCP and COSCA.

I provide a non judgemental, safe and confidential environment, tailored to your specific needs and at your pace. Together we can identify and challenge thinking patterns and styles and build on the resilience you already possess. Therapy can provide you with the strategies you need to help build a more positive future.

I am a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist with a background in education and in yoga/fitness teaching. Clients bring a wide variety of issues to cognitive behavioural therapy sessions, such as anxiety, depression, panic -attacks and low self-esteem, for example, and many of their goals include, learning, how to relax, breathe properly, meditate, exercise and find self-compassion. Therefore, by collaborating together and combining some of my skills with each client's goals, positive change happens. I have experience with adults, young people and children, as I counsel within school. My approach is warm, welcoming, and empathic

Life can be crap at times and you might be feeling stuck and finding it hard to find a way out. You might be feeling anxious, depressed or struggling with self-esteem, having lost belief in yourself. This can be due to things happening around you, big life changes, challenges and trauma experienced in the past, or current relationship difficulties. Together we can start to make sense of what is going on for you. The work I do looks to understand unhelpful thinking and behavioural patterns developed in the past and how they are impacting you in the here and now. When we make sense of the past, we can make sustainable changes today.

Hello and thank you for connecting with me. Are you fed up feeling fed up? I completely understand and am here to help. I support women who have issues with confidence and self-esteem. This may be because of challenging personal relationships, family issues, difficult childhoods, domestic or childhood abuse or just the many challenges life brings. Sometimes, people may be unsure why they feel the way they do, but have a strong sense that things could be brighter. Peeling back the layers of our lives takes great courage, but change is possible, indeed inevitable, when we take that leap of faith.

Self Esteem Counsellors
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum.
