"I am excited to be able to support the community of Hartswood hospital as it meets my approach to counselling, friendly and relaxed but always professional."
What do you do if you are experiencing high anxiety or uncomfortable with how you are feeling or overwhelmed by your circumstances? Where do you go if you are feeling the pressure from home or work, panicked about how you are feeling or that you are not sure how to cope or manage everyday life events? Who do you talk to about the issues that really matter to you. The subjects that create a conversation that goes on to be one that is significant and heard?
Here is where you start to be aware of who you are and what you can do to change.
Understanding how to manage your feelings, understanding how and why important decision are difficult to make, learning how to think in a way that makes life easier to handle.
I use techniques and models to help people understand why their body responds in the way it does, as this is usually the scariest part of feeling out of control. I can help you put it all back in control, anxiety, stress, anger, sadness, abandonment, rejection, shame. Supporting people to overcome life’s adversities, guiding them through addictive behaviours without fear of judgment, feeling heard and not just listened to, showing understanding in a life that seems not to make sense.
I do all of this through not just talking, but listening and a great deal of humour, or we can be creative or as chilled and dialled back as you want it to be. We will explore the barriers that are holding you back. I have been empowering clients to take back control for over 25 years now and still love every minute of it.
All I need you to do is believe that you have the capacity to change and make a difference.
Please feel free to contact me by email text or phone call and I will do my best to contact you within a couple of hours and happy to have phone call to discuss your situation and for you to ask any questions.

I have a special interest in long distance running, although sadly my knees make themselves known lately! I have a keen connection with the saddle but again not so much in recent years.
