Can you answer "Yes" to any of these questions? 

  • Are you going through a major change in your life, such as separation, divorce, death of a loved one, communication and relationship problems, major illness, mid-life crises?
  • Do you feel depressed, stressed or anxious?
  • Are you finding it a struggle just getting through the day?
  • Are little things that used to be easy for you, now overwhelming and seeming like a major chore?
  • Do you waiver in your belief that you can change and have no idea where to start?
  • Perhaps your outer world is OK, but you think you would benefit from knowing your inner self better, and what makes you react the way you do, thus improving the quality and colour of your life?

If so, then please read on ....

You may feel as if you are struggling alone with some of the difficulties mentioned above.  Perhaps it seems as if nobody really has the time or sufficient empathy to hear your deepest concerns. You may think that no-one can really understand you. Maybe you think that those closest to you have heard enough from you ... Well, there could be some truth in any one of those thoughts ... 

So, how do you get heard and understood?  How do heavy inner problems become lightweight once again? How do you get back your sense of purpose and sparkle? How do you get back to a life which feels better all round?

If you're asking yourself this type of question, then you have arrived at a very appropriate place ....

My style of Holistic Integrative Counselling could be the very route for you to find the breakthrough you hope for. With 30 years of experience and training as a counsellor, I've helped many people to overcome their difficulties and to find their inner strengths.

Your Next Steps:


MY SPECIALISM - TRAUMA AND ABUSE (EMDR) If you are suffering from any aspect of trauma or abuse and have tried other forms of help to no avail, then maybe you would like to try a proven and cutting edge approach to clear these issues. Often this manifests as anxiety or depression or high stress levels. OR, alternatively, go to my specialised website, There have been many randomised control trials and there is plenty of empirical evidence to demonstrate the effectiveness of EMDR in the treatment of many issues. Please go to my special website if you'd like further information about EMDR, trauma and ptsd:

COUPLE OR RELATIONSHIP THERAPY  if you'd like the space to explore your relationship difficulties, make sense of them and change them
