I offer a variety of techniques and we will choose those which suit best your personality and preferences. These techniques work at a deep level and are especially helpful for anxiety, stress, fear, anger, depression, low-confidence and self-esteem, loss, loneliness, relationship issues and in relieving the pain and grief suffered by those who have had the misfortune to experience emotional and/or physical abuse.

I will help you to explore and express your feelings in a safe, confidential and supportive way. While doing this we, together, develop strategies to manage current difficulties while simultaneously releasing pain from the recent, or even very distant, past.

As well as Emotional Therapeutic Counselling we can use yoga techniques, (I am fully qualified) such as breathing, as many of these are simple yet bring great relief.
When appropriate I also draw on my background as part of a psychiatric team in a hospital including a drug and alcohol addiction unit and later carrying out research into mental health (public attitudes in particular) for the World Health Authority. You will be in safe and caring hands.
