If you are going through a particularly difficult time in your life and feel that no one understands you, perhaps I can help you re-gain some clarity

When people are struggling and reach out for help, I see this as a sign of strength, as it can symbolise the first step towards coming to terms with your situation.

As a UKCP accredited Psychotherapist as well as a BACP registered Counsellor I offer a safe, reflective space for you to be heard without being judged. I have a deep respect for the differences that exist in people and it is this that reinforces my commitment to working with you in an anti-discriminatory way. I am qualified and experienced in providing a genuine, non-judgmental, empathic therapeutic relationship.

" I can help you regain some clarity "

To gain a better understanding of how I can help you please feel free to look at my Psychotherapy and Counselling pages, or you can email or call me to have a talk about your requirements.
