Specialist in Anxiety, panic attacks, stress, low mood, depression, phobias, sexual difficulties, relationship issues, family problems, gender or sexuality issues, difficulty in communicating



Hello. I am an experienced therapist and I work really well with clients who suffer from anxiety, low moods and negative thinking. I also specialise in supporting you if you are struggling with relationships and intimacy is missing from your life. I am registered with BACP and I practice Psychodynamic Counselling, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Psychosexual Counselling. I will work collaboratively with you to achieve your therapeutic goals in a safe and non-judgemental environment.
Together we will work through whatever issue you bring and think together how you can have new experiences and develop a more positive outlook, and be compassionate to yourself. I enjoy being a therapist and I am passionate about what I do, whether you want 'just the one session for now' or deal with a specific issue or want open-ended therapy I am ready to work with you.
