About

You may have some ideas as to why you are seeking counselling or you may simply feel the need to talk to someone. You might experienced a loss, bereavement, a change in family circumstances or a relationship. You might be suffering from an illness or health problems. Perhaps you have problems at work, with your employment or finances. You might have lost touch with yourself or feel uncertain about a life decision. You may be confused, unhappy, depressed, anxious, worried or sad. You may have concerns about your body, weight, appearance, sexuality, drugs or alcohol. You may experienced a trauma or an abusive relationship.
I have been qualified for twelve years. I work with couples, families and individuals. I also have experience of working with ex-cult or high demand members or coercive relationships. I also work with narcissism, trauma and psychosexual clients. I have worked for Mind, the NHS providing short and long term therapy as well as running my own private practice.
I fully understand how daunting, frightening or confusing seeking therapy can be. If you are thinking about it please contact me so we can talk about how you are feeling. Talking about how it might feel and gaining more understanding about how the process works can be helpful.
