Counselling and Therapy Services

Counselling Services for Children & Adolescents
I provide emotional and therapeutic services to children and adolescents, from 4 years of age, building resilience and healing through talking, creative work and play. Children and adolescents can often find themselves needing support to cope with wide ranging and often complex social issues such as family breakdown, health problems, abuse, loneliness, bullying, bereavement & trauma. As well as my private practice I work with children in primary and secondary schools.

Counselling & Psychotherapy for Adults
I provide emotional, therapeutic and personal change services for individuals and couples as well as marriage counselling.
I hold the fundamental assumption that as human beings we are all ok and that we all have the ability to make changes in our lives. You might feel there is nothing specific, you may feel low, down, lost, stuck, lots of pressures such as managing workloads, finances, life at home or ill health. Or you may be facing very specific issues with relationships, gender, sexuality, bereavement, anxiety and stress, self-image, lack of confidence and self-esteem, domestic violence, abuse, feelings of loneliness, isolation or generalised feelings of unhappiness. These pressures can build and you can end up feeling like there is no hope or no way forward, I can offer services to support you. As well as my private practice, i work with adults referred from health and social care professionals such as doctors, midwives, social workers and self-referral this is part of the NHS funded Improving Access to Therapeutic (IAPT) Services.

Counselling & Therapy for Couples
Couples can sometimes find it hard to relate to each other, unable to connect.
This can be for so many different reasons, some of the most common being lack of communication, frequent or constant arguments, unfulfilled emotional needs, financial concerns and conflicts about children.
Other couples seek help because of a crisis in the relationship, such as an affair or apparent loss of affection and caring, or a traumatic event, such as an illness or loss in the family. When working with couples I am an objective third party, I will listen to both of you equally as you express your thoughts and feelings.
I will help you identify problem areas and gain a better understanding of yourselves, to decide if you need, or want, to make changes and, if so, I can help you make them.
