I offer face to face and online video counselling to adult individuals who are suffering from self-esteem and anxiety issues, to help them make positive changes to their life and to feel better aboutthemselves. Sometimes, it can seem that the easiest thing to do is bury our emotions and hope our difficulties just go away, but this rarely works and can make matters worse for you. If you want to break the cycle and change your situation, but don’t know how, try talking to me.

Counselling seeks to emphasise an individual's potential for change and growth. The client is encouraged to talk openly about their difficulties, sharing worries and fears. Working togetherconfidentially in a series of sessions, we will explore aspects of being in the world. The work will promote a sense of clarity, identifying how current choices can be broadened, allowing for different outcomes to existing difficulties, problems and issues.

With a life sciences degree I started my career in science research, before moving into sales and marketing for various life sciences companies. I have been involved in personal coaching since 2007,when I qualified as a NLP Practitioner. This set me on the path to a new more fulfilling vocation and since then ever curious to learn more I have added skills in Thought Field Therapy to diagnostic level, Hypnotherapy to Diploma level and most recently Counselling and Psychotherapy to Diploma level.
Counselling and Psychotherapy is a very personal and individual experience, in which I believe the relationship between the therapist and client is of upmost importance. Together, I hope we can findnew ways of looking at and approaching aspects of life.
