At some stage in our lives, many of us will experience anxiety, depression, stress, loneliness, bullying, diagnosis, bereavement and loss or issues relating to work/life balance.
You’re not alone. Counselling and Talking Therapy can help you manage and overcome many of these issues.
Maybe you've lost someone close to you, a friend or family member, and need someone to talk to. Maybe you are looking for your place in the world, talking might help you find it. Perhaps you are overworked, or just need to talk to someone outside of your family and friends, someone who just 'get's it'. Or, perhaps you're coming to terms with caring for a loved one with a new diagnosis and want to be able to explore this in a space free from judgement. Regardless of your age, gender, sexual identity or background, you are always welcome.
Nobody 'wants' therapy. What you want is your problem to go away.
Instead of anxiety, you want calmness. Instead of judgement, you want acceptance. Instead of stress, you want coping strategies and instead of depression you want happiness.
Whilst there's no magic wand to fix our problems, the combination of the right counsellor, with the right therapy, and your willingness to change puts you on the right path for positive change.
And you’ve already taken the most important step by seeking help today.

You may be asking what makes me different from a lot of other therapists?
I am an Integrative Psychotherapist/Counsellor, meaning I'm trained and experienced in several therapeutic approaches along with having a qualification in autism.
