Mates in Mind

I am a qualified Person Centred Counsellor Accredited with the National Counselling Society NCS (Accred) and registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP)

I have many years experience working within the NHS, Council and private sector. My empathic and warm approach creates a positive therapeutic space to enable clients to explore their difficulties in a non-judgemental and accepting environment.

I assist clients with issues including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, stress, anger, sleep issues, relationship issues, bereavement, addiction and abuse, empowering them to find solutions to their problems and ensuring they gain the maximum benefit from our sessions.

With my knowledge and experience of working as a Counsellor and a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner, I am able to be flexible in my approach, offering low intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) interventions as well as counselling. I am experienced in working with interpreters and can also offer group sessions as well as working with clients on a one to one basis.

I offer daytime, evening and weekend appointments. There is free parking in the side street next to the agency.
