I have been helping people to overcome a wide range of issues for many years.

I have worked in both the NHS and within the private sector. I work alongside other local professionals including consultant psychiatrists and clinical psychologist & counselling psychologists providing a range of different psychological interventions including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or CBT, Psychodynamic, Psychoanalytical, Solution focused therapy and couples counselling.

Counselling and Psychological therapy for mental health and life events...


Life can at times feel difficult and overwhelming. The stresses and strains of everyday life can impact on our mental and psychological well-being in a number of different ways. Some people may find themselves becoming depressed and possibly not wanting, or able, to go out of their house. Others may become full of anxiety and feel constantly on red alert, worrying about a multitude of things. Sometimes people experience a panic attack for the first time, unsure of what is happening to them and can feel that they are having a heart attack, they can then live in fear of ever having another panic attack as they are unsure as to why it occurred in the first place.


Counselling and Psychotherapy to help build constructive coping skills

People may try to self medicate by excessively drinking or taking illegal drugs or simply comfort eat, all these are destructive coping strategies, however at times feel our only option. Psychological support from a clinical psychologist or counselling psychologist or psychotherapist can often help to identify more constructive ways of managing our distress.
