Counselling and Psychotherapy

My Approach

I offer a warm, safe confidential space for you to discuss whatever is troubling you. My counselling style is integrative which means I can draw from my professional training and experience a range of counselling styles and theoretical models. This allows for me to ensure your individual needs are met and for us to work relationally and collaboratively together. This is your space and you are always in control.

  • ​Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Phobias

  • Relationship difficulties

What happens next?

Please contact me and we can arrange a free and no obligation initial (30 minute) face to face or telephone session. We can briefly touch on your issues, you can ask any questions and  decide whether I am the right  therapist for you


If you decide to proceed, we can agree a mutually agreeable time to meet. Clients often ask how many sessions it will take and this is a difficult question to answer. It varies from individual to individual and depends to some extent on the depth and complexity of the issue. Some clients only need a couple or some may need a more long term approach- there is no set limit. Whereas this possibly does not answer the question, I can guarantee that this will always be your decision and the progress of therapy will be discussed as we go along with openness and honesty.

If you would like more information or to ask further questions, please contact me, my details are at the bottom of this page.
