A confidential space to explore the thoughts, feelings and challenges in your life
Taking that first step should never be considered a moment of weakness - instead, it shows the true strength of character.
The first step of the process is taking the first courageous step to seek therapy.
This first step can be empowering and may feel a bit scary at the same time, but the best results are achieved by talking it out, with the assurance of knowing that you will not be judged, but met with empathy and understanding.
Whether you are experiencing indefinable feelings of dissatisfaction or seeing to focus on a specific issue, I can provide a safe and confidential setting in which thoughts and feelings can be discussed – free from judgement and prejudice.
Experiences and problems that we face can create feelings of unhappiness such as stress, low mood and a loss of control or direction in our lives. It can also be difficult to truly share our thoughts and feelings with our friends and family.

I have over 10 years experience with Addictions Homelessness ,Supported Services.
I have over 6 years experience as a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and worked face to face, walk talk therapy, online, telephone, text message services.
Making the decision to see a counsellor is a big step to take - but it can be a positive one. Please read on to find out more about how I could help you.
Over the years I have notice that more and more men are becoming brave enough to seek support and Increasing numbers of men are now making use of Therapists and Counsellors to help find ways of making things better for themselves. My client load is now 95% male which shows awareness around males and mental health are finally becoming more acceptable for males seeking support.
One of the reasons men often find therapy difficult is that men are often taught to deal with things themselves and not to admit 'weakness' or emotional upset of any kind. In other words, men are socialised into never asking for help or admitting difficulty, which can be a real problem when things get tough and they need some support to help make things better.
Hence many men feel a bit embarrassed, and they tend to seek support when things are really bad indeed. Even in such circumstances, it is not uncommon for female partners to make the first appointment - which, of course is fine so long as the man agrees.
COMMON PROBLEMS WITH MALES
Men experience the same range of difficulties and problems as women although frequently use things like excessive drinking, substance abuse, overworking, eating unhealthily, pornography and other risky/self-harming behaviours to deal with unhappiness of one form or another.
WORKING WITH MEN
Although all men are very different in what way they want and need from therapy, one of the common themes is a desire to feel the therapeutic process has a specific goal/focus which is agreed upon and worked toward in a fairly direct way and I can use various Tools and Techniques to help empower that person and to help them in a new way of thinking and working through the battles they may have in front of them. However, what must be tackled is the acknowledgement of difficult feelings, such as low mood or anxiety, that are causing the problem in the first place. This can be a hard and uncomfortable process, but is one that I am very experienced in managing and supporting in an open honest way.
My Counselling approach is mainly from a Person - Centred perspective, however I can use Rational Emotive Behaviour
Therapy (REBT) Mindfulness techniques (DBT) when required

your life where required.

Trouble with a relationship; anxiety or panic attacks; mood swings or depression - many people face difficulties in their everyday lives that can be hard to get on top of. Counselling gives us a set of tools we can use to help gain a better understanding of what’s causing these problems - and how you can move towards managing or resolving them.
Working together I can help you gain greater insight into the difficulties you are facing, help you understand why you act or react to them the way you do, and see how you can start to make better, healthier choices moving forward.
