Are you seeking help because you are feeling anxious, stressed, upset, depressed, overwhelmed? Lacking joy or stability in your life? Perhaps you just feel unhappy, that your life just isn't quite right or fulfilling any more?
I can give you non-judgemental, supportive environment to help you work through your thoughts and feelings and live a life which is more fulfilling. It can be very difficult to work through problems and concerns while they whirl around your head. Counselling (or "therapy") provides a calm and confidential space and time to sort out your thoughts and feelings, identifying changes you would like to make and developing skills needed to manage. Counselling is all about you and the choices you can make.
I can be reached by email or phone. If you phone, I may not be able to answer your call immediately - so please leave a voicemail message if you would like me to call you back. Out of consideration for your privacy, I cannot call back if you do not leave a voicemail or text message asking me to. Please ensure you have said your phone number when leaving a voicemail if you would like me to call you. My office hours are given on my website.
I have clinical experience in a number of areas, including:
Anxiety (particularly general anxiety disorder and social anxiety)
Lack of confidence
Family breakdown / family issues
Self image / body image
I have a particular interest in working with people with disabilities – particularly those with “invisible” neurological disabilities such as fibromyalgia, hypermobility, CFS/ME and chronic pain. These illnesses are very real with numerous debilitating symptoms, but the mental and emotional impacts of living with these conditions can be worked with in counselling.
My fee is £35 per 50 minute session.
A ground floor therapy space in my home, about 1.5 miles from the town centre.
