I am a therapist and life coach who works with a solution focused approach, I am committed to finding positive outcomes. My job is to help you reach your goals.
When working with individuals I work in six block sessions, with a check in after every six sessions to explore how we are doing. I am fully committed to every individual I see, working hard between sessions to find as many solutions as possible to be able to help you.
The reason my work is shorter than some therapists is because I incorporate coaching as well, giving clients handouts and work to do between sessions.
My Counselling and therapeutic coaching service can support you by enabling you to get in touch with feelings or emotions which may have previously been too painful or frightening for you to feel.
Therapy with myself creates a nurturing space for connection needs to emerge, particularly needs that have been shut down for a very long time. Therapy lets us feel those needs again in a natural way, and helps us to get to know the anger, fear or shame that can be tangled up with needing.
I have always been interested in how the human mind works, and how our past experiences can affect our present life. From a young age I seemed to have had an innate awareness and understanding of people. I am passionate about helping people find their way in life.
I have a natural ability to help people feel comfortable in my company. I work with many different issues with special interest in stress, burnout, anxiety, depression, Low self-esteem, communication breakdown, infidelity and how these play out in relationships.
I will help you find solutions to your issues. I offer both counselling and practical solutions to your problems.
I have worked with a variety of different issues and use my own personal journey through therapy and therapeutic coaching to offer an insightful and empathetic solutions focused counselling relationship.
A therapeutic relationship is unlike any other relationship; it involves 60 minutes of time dedicated to finding solutions for you; my role as your therapist is to walk alongside you on your path of self-discovery and acceptance.

“When a person realizes they have been deeply heard, their eyes moisten. I think in some real sense they are weeping for joy. It is as though he were saying, “Thank God, somebody heard me. Someone knows what it’s like to be me”― Carl R. Rogers
