About me and my therapy practice

My aim is to provide a safe and confidential space in which any topic may be explored without judgement.

This is an opportunity to discuss concerns and issues that might be difficult to share with family and friends. It is a chance to feel supported, gain insight and make positive changes.

I have a particular interest in working with people whose concerns or anxieties date back to childhood and teenage years, and how this might impact on their work and relationships.

I’m also interested in exploring spiritual, religious and philosophical concerns, and I work with trauma of all types.

I have been involved with counselling since 2009. For me, counselling is not about giving advice or telling you what to do. Rather, my aim is to help you to explore challenging thoughts, feelings and situations so you can find a way forward.

Sometimes there is a particular issue that needs addressing, perhaps an addiction or the death of a loved one. For some, a traumatic experience or a difficult childhood has left a deep wound. Sometimes there is a need to find practical solutions to deal with complicated work or relationship issues.

Therapy mostly involves talking, but it can also be helpful to use breathing exercises, meditation or mindfulness.
