Whatever you are struggling with I will work with you to make the positive changes you'd like to make.

I can help you with a range of issues including stress, low mood, anxiety, low self esteem, relationships, loss, anger and trauma.

I also have specialist experience and knowledge of disability, carer, health, student and gender dysphoria issues.

You might want to talk about what's going on for you now or about what's happened to you in the past [and how that is impacting on you today].  You may want strategies and techniques you can immediately put into practice to alleviate stress, anxiety, low mood or low self esteem.

I will listen carefully to what you have to say, without judging you.  I will work with you to find an approach that works for you, because different things work for different people eg writing exercises, keeping a journal or diary, Mindfulness, CBT [Cognitive Behavioural Therapy – which looks at thoughts, feelings, behaviours and unhelpful thinking styles].

Because I believe information and understanding can go a long way to resolving problems I have developed a series of mind maps, which offer explanations about, and strategies for tackling, common issues.
