About me and my therapy practice

Life is a roller coaster and we all face times when a situation, relationship or loss, can overwhelm us. I use a range of approaches, CBT, solution-focused therapy, mindfulness and counselling. Building resilience against these situations is key to leading a happy and fulfilled life. Counselling will give you the opportunity to take time out, see things from a new perspective and discover the strengths and skills that you have whilst building your resources. We will work at your pace although 97% of clients have six or fewer sessions and you will leave with a range of strategies to enable you to deal with your current situation and all that life has in store. Therapeutic interventions are not just a 'talking shop'. Developing the skills to view things differently, understanding emotional responses and gaining control of them will help you to get back on track and achieve your goals.
