One to One
Counselling Therapy

I provide one to one counselling therapy in a friendly, confidential, non judgemental & empathic environment whereby I help to alleviate the stressors of daily living. Such issues include addictions, anxiety, bereavement / loss, anger, emotional / physical distress, self esteem and relationship difficulties.

I incorporate a treatment strategy which is tailored to the individual needs of my clients with all ages varying from 16 years onwards. Some of the interventions I utilise consist of Reality Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy.

How I Can Help

Addiction Counselling

Addiction is an inability to stop using a substance or engaging in a behaviour even though it is causing psychological and physical harm.

Suicide Counselling

This involves a specific strategy whereby one can learn the warning signs, promote awareness, prevention and resistance.

Trauma Therapy

Trauma is an emotional response to a highly stressful event such as bullying, an accident, abuse, pyysical attack, and sexual abuse.

Abuse Counselling

Emotional and Physical abuse are primarily a means of control and a way for the abuser to feel superior.

Relationship Therapy

Relationship Difficulties can arise from dishonesty, insecurity, co-dependence, selfishness, inhability to communicate, verbal & physical abuse, secrecy, alcohol and drug use.

Bereavement Therapy

Bereavement can take many forms – death, unemployment, divorce, leaving home. Whilst the emotional experience can includesadness, anger,guilt, anxiety and more…

Harm Reduction

Harm Reduction is a strategy used to minimise the risks stemming from shared use of drug-use paraphernalia such as needle exchanges. It can also be used for alcohol misuse, sex addition and different types of eating disorders.

Depression & Anxiety

These often overlap as they have distinct clinical features such as irritability, decreased concentration & impaired sleep. Sadness, low energy, loss of interest, feeling helpless & thoughts of death or suicide are pre-disposing factors that inflence depression & anxiety.


Co-dependency in a relationship is a set of behaviours that cause an unhealthy attachment with one other person. There is a dependency on the other to create and fulful their sense of self.
