Sometimes it is hard to talk to friends or family about what you are going through and how it makes you feel. The advice given, though well meant, can be confusing, perhaps because it is coming from people who are too close and trying to ‘fix ’things. Or you may feel that you are a burden and not want to share your worries with them.

The counselling room creates a safe place to offload. It is a place to get a different perspective; to regain some lost strength and to gain a better understanding of where you are now and be more at peace with making positive choices for the future with someone who cares and won’t judge you.

My approach is to use common sense and is simple. I follow you and your needs, working alongside you in a considered and confidential way, listening carefully, reflecting back and clarifying any confusion. This counselling process helps establish feelings of safety, supporting you to deal with the things that need to be changed and to come to terms with those that can’t.

Alongside my private practice I have worked as a counsellor for a bereavement charity, a family mediation organisation, in schools and young people's homes.

It is well documented that the key to successful therapy is the good relationship between therapist and client. I recommend an initial free phone call to talk through how I work and answer any questions that you may have, so that you can decide if I am the right person for you to work with.

About the work:

The number of sessions is up to you as the client. Sometimes up to six sessions is enough to make a difference, finding some tools and coping strategies to take into everyday life. Medium and long  term counselling allows us to work in more depth.
