Children Young people Adults Older adults Couples Families Groups Organisations Employee Assistance Programme "Being a Counsellor really is a vocation and it is, of course, a privilege". "I relish everyday, the opportunity to listen to all my clients, immersing myself in their lives and providing them with the space to be heard. I can relate to many of the issues facing the people I counsel and can create a rapport with all age groups, from Children & Teenagers to the Elderly with an emphasis on empathy, warmth and humour. I have worked in numerous environments where being unpretentious, relatable, having an appropriate sense of humour and being genuine, were essential. I'm passionate about counselling being accessible to everyone who wants to access it and I relish the opportunity to listen to people and provide a confidential and safe environment for them to do so. I offer a respectful, empathic, accepting, caring, confidential and supportive environment for you to talk, and in turn I will listen to you. Counselling doesn’t have to be complicated – it can be made simple".

Specialising in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy which is mindfulness based form of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy benefiting those who suffer from emotion regulation difficulties. This form of therapy can help those with chronic feelings of anxiety, depression, anger issues and relationship problems. After an initial assessment we will ascertain the best type of therapy for your needs and formulate a personalised plan of how to proceed. How can counselling help? People choose to have counselling as they are suffering some form of psychological distress, for a multitude of reasons:- • Sometimes the reason is very specific e.g. a life changing event such as bereavement, broken relationship or trauma. • Other times people don’t really know what is wrong but just have a sense they don’t feel “right” and want to get back to their old selves again. • Sometimes people have struggled all their lives with overwhelming feelings and want to sort it out once and for all. • Hearing your own voice aloud, sharing your thoughts and feelings with another human being with a genuine desire to understand, is in itself therapeutic. • Together we can explore what brought you to therapy and as the process unfolds we can discover how your life experiences have brought you to this point. • Rather like a jigsaw puzzle, it is possible to piece together your life experiences and recognise patterns in behaviour. • Validation of your feelings can aid the healing process from unresolved internal conflict. • Gaining insight and self-awareness brings greater understanding and choices. • We can discover resources within you, you didn’t know you had and identify hidden obstacles you never knew were restricting you. Therapy is not something the counsellor does to you, but like a lot of things, you will get out of it what you put in. For this reason, it is not a sign of weakness to seek counselling rather than an act of courage. Taking charge of your well-being is something to be proud of. It’s not a quick fix but depending on your objective and given adequate time can be extremely powerful. What Next? Contemplating seeing a counsellor can be daunting.
