Contacting a counsellor can feel daunting – most of us have never done it before and we don’t know what to expect or whether it’s for us. It is paramount that the environment feels safe, where trust can develop. I am friendly, warm, ready to listen, never judgemental, and here to do my best to help you. I know you need to be assured of a professional service that’s confidential, ethical, draws on up-to-date therapeutic knowledge, and uses effective, evidence-based therapies.
I have helped many people with a wide variety of issues. Here is a list of the areas I have successfully worked on with previous clients:
- dissociative disorders
- identity and sexuality
- bereavement and loss
- anxiety and panic
- stress and anger
- low mood and depression
- suicidal tendancies
- unwanted feelings and thoughts
- family and relationship issues
- marriage, separation and divorce difficulties
- affairs and betrayals
- refugee/asylum issues
- trauma, complex trauma and abuse
- low self-esteem/self-confidence/self-worth
- guilt and shame
My methods of practice
Face to face – short term, 6 – 12 sessions
Face to face – long term, on going
I understand that sometimes people may be unable to make it to the session, for various reasons such as, not feel physically well, feeling over whelming high levels of anxiety or being away on holiday or with work.
If one of these is the case, I am happy to have a call over the phone or an email conversation, both of which will be for 50 minutes like a normal session and charged the same.
Online counselling will be available in the coming months.
