I know that with the right support you can deal with the challenges that life throws at you, both practical and emotional.   It could be a problem that’s been building up over time or maybe something’s happened out of the blue turning your whole world upside down.  The very fact you’re reading this means that despite everything you’ve tried so far your life isn’t working out the way you want it to.   You know something has to change but it’s so hard to see what the next step is.

I generally work with adults and my areas of special interest are

  • Managing Stress
  • Anxiety and depression,
  • Loss and bereavement,
  • Relationship issues
  • Working through the challenges that accompany major changes such as a relationship breakdown and retirement.

And if you do decide you want to take the next step, you’ll get a safe space to tell your story, your way, and together we’ll work out what you need right now, where you want to be and how you can get there.   We can agree to meet for a small number of focused sessions to get you through the immediate crisis or you may feel you need longer to help you make more significant life changes. Or somewhere in between – you decide!  We’ll keep reviewing how it’s going until you feel ready to move on.

Studies show that it’s the relationship between you and your therapist that really influences whether counselling will work for you and you’ll get the results you want.   For that reason, I offer an initial session that’ll let you to find out whether we could work together successfully.

I trained in a number of therapeutic approaches and am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society as well as being registered with the BACP. In addition to my therapeutic training I bring with me a wide variety of experience across business, education and the voluntary sector. I also hold an enhanced DBS certificate.

If you would like to know more, or to set up an initial session, please give me a call, text or e-mail me.   We can talk face to face in a quiet, peaceful room in the centre of Shrewsbury, on the phone or by video-conferencing – whatever works best for you.
