I’ve worked as a qualified counselor since 2010 and specialise in helping people cope with their issues. I coach my clients in a way that utilises both their heads and their hearts.
In addition to running a private practice, I work at a residential treatment center specialising in addiction-related issues such as: substance misuse, depression, compulsive disorders, trauma, grief, abuse, and family and relationship difficulties. I understand there are obstacles which can present when engaging with therapy such as finding the time, anxiety about the process and financial commitment. But, I can assure you the move to reinvest in yourself is a rewarding and worthwhile one. Over the years I have witnessed individuals change and evolve.
They've identified needs, emotions, and developed coping skills to manage and confront problems. Clients have then moved on to lead more meaningful lives. I provide a safe and confidential space that will allow you to talk about any life event or situation that's  causing you distress.
In collaboration with you, we will work towards exploring and identifying your potential for growth and change by addressing underlying issues. If you are considering therapy as a means of improving your life, then I can guide you in this endeavour.
If you have any questions about my methods, or would like to schedule a consultation, please get in touch today.
