Key Worker Counselling

I counsel adults around a wide range of issues. ​These include: anxiety, family & relationship issues, depression, low self-esteem and addiction. My core training is in Transactional Analysis counselling and psychotherapy; I have additional training and experience in working with substance misuse, boarding school survivors and young people.
Inner change can happen at any point in our lives, when we are willing to take that first step. ​ "Start close in, don’t take the second step or the third, start with the first thing close in, the step you don’t want to take." ​ ​(David Whyte, River Flow: New and Selected Poems).
