Whether you are clear on what you want to achieve or you want a safe and confidential space to talk things through,
we can look at what you need and make a plan to work together in the best way that suits you.
I work with adults of all ages dealing with a range of concerns and experiences.
I offer both short term counselling and long-term, in-depth therapy, coaching and
specific help with bereavement, grief, and those working in the creative industries.
Please note that my face to face sessions have been temporarily
replaced with an online and telephone service due to the current crisis.

People that come for Psychotherapy and Counselling describe finding a place where they feel listened to and where they can talk about what's going on for them without being judged or trying to be fixed. They talk about gaining a better sense of who they are and what they want in their life. They say they feel calmer and experience better sleep, reduced anxiety, and feeling more confident to ask for what they need.
It is important to note that counselling and psychotherapy are generally recognised as beneficial but sometimes this isn't always the case.
Choosing a counsellor or psychotherapist can be a big decision and it is important to feel that the person you choose is right for you.
