How I Can Help

As a trained psychotherapeutic counsellor I can offer counselling therapy on a range of issues such as:

  • depression
  • life changes
  • anxiety
  • bereavement
  • anger management
  • low confidence
  • low self esteem
  • illness
  • emotional struggles in parenting
  • relationship issues
  • separation/divorce
  • mild addictions
  • mild eating disorders
  • work-related stress
  • ageing
  • social isolation

Emotional struggles can often be a part of life, at times they can be overwhelming. Talking therapy can bring relief to these struggles. Talking therapies can also reduce the chances of symptoms returning and reduce or avoid the need for medication. Professionally guided talking allows one to develop awareness. This knowledge is the start to greater understanding of oneself and achieving the desired changes.

As an integrative therapist I draw upon a number of theories/therapies in particular Transactional Analysis, Attachment Theory and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to inform my work. Maintaining a compassionate, respectful, non-judgmental, contained yet open and empathic relationship is essential and helps determine the success of the counselling therapy.

I offer short, medium and long-term counselling depending on the issues presented and what work is required.
