    How I can help you

    Are you looking for someone to talk to? Finding feelings and emotions a little to overwhelming? Unable to cope or just need someone to process your thoughts? 

    Then my approach maybe for you, I'm a fully qualified Integrative Psychotherapist. I specialise in anxiety, depression, addiction and trauma. I have personally received counselling in the past and know first hand how it can help you regain your confidence, develop trust and move forward with your life. I like to build a trusting therapeutic relationship with my clinets be that online or face to face. Its important you feel safe enough to share your concerns and issues in confidence. 

    What to expect

    Plus Guidance offers an initial 15 min IM or Video session free of charge to see if we feel comfortable working together. After this you're can purchase and book available slots with me via my calendar. If you have any concerns or questions please send me a message and I'll reply as soon as I can. 

    Counselling & Psychotherapy is a two way process, you may be asked to do work between sessions, keep diaries or do questionnaires. These will be explained to you in session and agreed together. 

    About me

    As well as offering online counselling via PlusGuidance I run my private practise at my home in South Derbyshire. Where I offer counselling & psychotherapy to individuals from a variety of back grounds and different issues. I also work as part of the Clinical Team at a Residential Clinic and Recovery Centre, where we support people who have realised that some aspect of their life has become over powering, for example alcohol, drugs, food, depression, anxiety, stress or work burn out. 

    My therapeutic approach is integrative, which allows flexibility for the clients individual needs as I can adapt my approach accordingly. I offer a 30 minute free trial via IM to see how we maybe able to work together, after which you can book sessions via this website from my Calendar function. I feel its important that we jointly agree the right therapeutic approach to best meet your needs, so our first session will look at what you'd like to get out of counselling and how I maybe able to support you.

    Please have a look at my website for more information: if you'd like face to face appointments or to find out more about me.
