Questioning something in your life or even just a feeling or an anxiety or a low mood or something else known only to you might be leading you to these profiles. Sometimes getting along with people and simply existing in the world is hard. Perhaps your head is telling you one thing but you have a feeling or a sense that all is not well overall. You may have an idea why or you may not be sure. Maybe your family history or big events from the past are still affecting you. Working out a way for you to face the future might be tricky
Perhaps reading this and considering coming for Counselling already seems too much. Talking about things together, Counselling (also known as Therapy) can help you to work out what is going on, why it’s happening and what you can do about it to sort things out and feel more comfortable.
I offer patience and understanding, in a confidential safe secure environment. Each person is an individual. We can work on a specific issue, ranging from short term work on a specific problem to longer term exploring wider issues, at a pace that is guided by you.
I work with individuals or couples or family pairs eg father and son or mother and daughter and 16 & 17 year olds.
I work according to your needs.
Other areas of interest are Relationship and Parenting issues, working with adult children of Narcissistic parents, Spiritual & Religious issues, working with men and Masculinity, helping with toxic shame

If you or I don't think that i'm the best person to help you I can assist you in finding another therapist
Training and qualifications
Qualifications can only tell you a limited amount about the therapist you might be choosing. It's not like choosing a builder or a mechanic, where the service provided is the same in all cases. Choosing a therapist is a personal thing which you won't really have a full idea about until we have sat with each other and had a chat. (Having said that my main training at Minster Centre below was rigorous, practically and theoretically)
Diploma in Integrative Counselling (Minster Centre)
Certificate in Couples Counselling (Revision)
Accredited member of BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists)
Member of OTS (Oxfordshire Therapy & Self Development) a varied working community of therapists offering a diverse way of providing therapy.
