“THE SECRET OF GETTING AHEAD IS GETTING STARTED ”

MARK TWAIN

 

Welcome

EDUCATION

In response to the current COVID-19 situation in the UK, I would like to reassure you that I am following government guidelines. Since March 17th 2020 all of my therapy practice is online using Zoom or Skype.

I will continue to offer counselling whilst I am fit and healthy if that changes I will let you know. I acknowledge this is a difficult time for many - all of us are affected by the current climate, and I am keenly aware of the challenges many are facing.

 

Our feelings can at times feel unbearable or overwhelming; in therapy, having a dedicated safe space will enable you to make sense of them.

Anger is a boundary that guards us. Fear is telling us to go slowly and carefully. Sadness helps us complete things and recognise that life is a profound farewell.
