About Me

I am a Person Centred Counsellor. This means that our therapy sessions aren't about me or my opinions. They are about you. I want to help you understand yourself more and help you recognise repetitive behaviour or cycles in your life that prevent you from moving forward. Working with me in counselling sessions can help you to understand some of the reasons behind your difficult or even overwhelming emotions. You can expect a calm, confidential environment, providing space for you to express your thoughts, feelings and emotions. Drawing on my extensive training, work and personal experience, I will help you talk about any difficult issues, exploring obstacles, choices and aspirations, whether they are current problems of a practical nature or repetitive patterns from your past affecting your daily life. Together we will work towards strengthening your inner resources and confidence. Perhaps you find it hard to cope with feelings such as depression, anger, loss, stress, anxiety, bereavement, relationship issues, loss of self-belief or low self-esteem. Maybe you have suffered childhood trauma or abuse. Sometimes we can feel that we are not 'good enough', have an unexplainable feeling of 'impending doom', or just a feeling that something isn't quite right. I have special experience with alcohol problems, drug misuse and a wide range of addictions.
