Types of client:
If you can dream it, you can do it - that is my deeply held belief. I love to help people to create the life they want. I have supported many people to get relief from anxiety, depression, symptoms of menopause and PTSD. I love working with couples helping them to repair issues and build stronger relationships. Relationship issues often feature in the work that individual clients bring and the tools that I offer can help people even when their partners are not in therapy with them. I have been qualified and seeing clients for over 20 years - helping people like you.
I offer a welcoming and empathic space to explore your issue and help you build a toolkit that you can use forever that supports your resilience and self-confidence. With over 20 years of counselling experience I have helped hundreds of clients to eliminate problems such as anxiety, depression, stress, relationship issues, bullying, health problems, menopause, self esteem and more. Clients often report that they know I just "get them". I love watching clients complete their work and walk out happier and resourced with their new toolkit.
Having experience of job loss, health issues, cancer, adoption process, anxiety and depression help me to understand the many issues people struggle with. This lived experience means I can fully understand the many issues that you experience and help you find new ways to deal with the impact of such issues so you support yourself towards improved health and wellbeing.
My keen interest and extensive training in working with anxiety, trauma and PTSD means you can get fast relief from them and start moving on with life. I have supported many NHS staff and other front line workers to reduce their stress fast.
I have helped many couples to find better ways to communicate and get more pleasure from their relationship.
As a fully qualified supervisor I enjoy supporting newly qualified therapists to build their private practice. I create a space that is encouraging and growthful for each supervisee and love sharing ideas and resources.
I look forward to helping you, too.

Experience of job loss, health issues, cancer, adoption helps me support others through these challenging experiences. Clients often say that they feel truly heard and supported by me. I love to see clients leave with positive results and a toolkit that will support them in any future issues.
