About Me

Sometimes we need someone to talk to who is not a friend or family member to help us understand things. Therapy can be like tidying a cupboard that has become a mess. We'll take everything out, sort it out and put it back in, in better order.

I am always non-judgmental and will be in your corner, seeing things from your perspective as far as possible.

I have wide experience working with low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, work related stress and family issues. Other problems I have successfully worked with include self-harm and suicidal thoughts, domestic violence, trauma and disordered eating.

The main thing I am trying to do is to help you understand things a little better. I do this by helping you to think differently, and at times challenging your existing behaviours, beliefs and perceptions.

I have successfully worked with clients on issues around anxiety, self-worth and not feeling good enough. I did this by helping my clients to both explore difficult feelings, and to see perceived failures and weaknesses as examples of resilience and achievements.

I have worked with young men in particular on issues around anger and substance misuse. I helped my clients get in touch with their feelings and manage them in a different way.

I have worked with trauma with different clients by helping them see how the trauma effects them now, and also guiding them through past incidents and previously buried feelings that have been triggered.

I have helped clients through work related issues and family problems by being in their corner and helping them see their feelings are absolutely valid. I can also help to change patterns of behaviour and have worked a lot with clients on boundaries.

I am particularly interested in working with issues related to alcohol and substance misuse, LGBTQ, discrimination and race. I also have specialist training in working with young people (aged 13+).

I offer an initial online consultation (usually about 20 minutes) at no charge via Google Meets to give you a chance to ask any questions you may, and to allow us to get to know eachother a little.
