Counselling and psychotherapy are processes that help people examine the issues that have led them to seek help. My aim is to listen to you and encourage you to talk about what is troubling you. I endeavor to help you understand your problems, explore options and assist you in reaching your own decisions about how to handle your concerns. My job is not to provide the answers or tell you what to do. Therapy may be a difficult process and you may feel that you need to have a few sessions before you experience any progress. However many people find it ultimately beneficial and find that they have explored aspects of themselves that have previously gone unchallenged.
I have Over 25 years experience in counselling and psychotherapy within the NHS and private settings. I have worked with a wide range of emotional difficulties.
