I am an experienced counselling psychologist;
I work therapeutically with a wide range of problems, such as Depression, Anxiety, Stress, Self Esteem, Life Transitions, Life Crises, Bereavement, Relationship Problems, Divorce, Separation, Anger, Panic Disorders, Obsessional Compulsive Disorder, Phobias, Sexual Abuse, Domestic Violence, Bullying, Work Related Distress, School Related Distress, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
I can offer a free 15 minute consultation, either in clinic or over the phone. Within 15 minutes you will be able to decide whether you would like to continue for therapeutic work. So your first step is making an enquiry and helping yourself.
Life throws up many problems and distresses...
Sometimes it is easier to talk in a confidential and private environment. I can usually accommodate appointments within a few days. You can refer yourself – otherwise I take referrals from Hospital Doctors, GPs, Psychiatrists, Consultants, Insurance Companies, Employers. The first session is based on a discussion about ‘the problem’ and together we talk about a treatment plan. I have experience working with Individuals, Couples, Families, Children, Adolescents and Adults. Ultimately, my therapeutic aim is to encourage people to seek insight and understanding – enabling you to find your own solutions to live a more satisfying way of life.
