    How I can help you

    If you are reading my profile on this site, then you are probably seriously considering counselling.  It's a big commitment for you- in terms of money and time, but also a commitment to your own wellbeing.  I am also committed- to helping you in ways you want to be helped, and in promoting that wellbeing.

    I will never judge you, or tell you what to do.  Instead I will try to understand what life is like for you, and find ways with you to make the quality of that life better, no matter what problems you may bring.  I realise what an important step this is for you, and my aim is to make it worthwhile.

    What to expect

    Once you decide what form of online communication you want to use, contact me and we will arrange an initial session.  This is to find out if online counselling will suit you, and for me to find out more about you and what you want to achieve.  

    You may have had counselling before- face to face or online- or you may have no experience of it.  I suggest you commit to 6 sessions to give yourself a chance to see how the process works.  

    It may be that, during the first session, we agree that you would benefit from short-term, focussed counselling, or we may decide it's a better idea to work in a more open-ended way.

    We will agree a time for scheduling our sessions, and it is an important part of the work that we keep to what we have agreed.  

    I will adapt the type of therapy I use according to what will suit you best.  I can't provide a quick "fix" for your problems, but I can help you to understand them better, and maybe see new ways of approaching them.  You have the resources inside you, and together we can help you improve the quality of your life.

    About me

    I trained as a psychodynamic counsellor after working in Art education.  I learnt to look at how our past affects the way we behave and live in the present, and how somehow it can cause us suffering.  I also learnt how to work in a more "here and now" way, seeing how our thoughts, actions and feelings are connected, and can create problems for us.  I use my experience to help my clients explore their problems and see them in a different way.  I believe we can all change and grow.

    I am a part-time artist, and for many years have practised Buddhist meditation, so that creativity and spirituality are important parts of my life.
