Whether you've had counselling or therapy before or are completely new to it, I hope you'll find all the information you need here to learn more about the service I offer.
I work holistically - meaning I include your thoughts/beliefs, feelings, body and spirit (whatever that means to you). I'm also trained in working with trauma and the nervous system in safe, effective ways and offer a range of therapeutic approaches, meaning I can find the best way of working with you as an individual.
I'm non-judgemental and sensitive to differences in ethnicity, culture, age, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, ability and gender.
Please note that during the Coronavirus pandemic I am offering online video-call and telephone sessions as an alternative to face-to-face counselling. I’m here to support you with whatever you're going through, whether that be existing problems or new challenges arising from the current situation.
I'm also offering a limited number of sessions at a discounted rate for frontline NHS staff and those in financial difficulty.
