Life can throw all sorts of unexpected events at us. At the  we are all in a very unusual situation with Covid19, with the added stress of social distancing and the fear of being ill ourselves.  Anxiety and depression can be a result of not being able to be close to poorly friends or being isolated, Being in lock-down with family where relationships are foundering can require careful management.

  • Have a chat on Whatsapp
  • Exchange texts or email
  • Talk on the phone

As a therapeutic counsellor, a combined approach to psychotherapy enables me to bring together different elements of specific therapies to work in the best way to help you.  I work  with a view that there is no single approach that can help each client in all situations.


Indoor therapy may not be for everyone: being outdoors can be very grounding and healing – connecting with nature can promote a sense of calm and serenity, even if the weather is bad! Nature is powerful and profound and can be refreshing for the soul.

Animal-assisted counselling

Animals can play a very important part in the therapeutic process, aiding relaxation and a sense of calm, reflecting mood and body language.


Movement is good for both physical and mental health. Exercise boosts your mood, and improves physical awareness: classes are a great way to make friends.

Life can seem very busy. Taking a mental break through mediation helps you to discover a quiet place, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.


Feeling overwhelmed is common if you have many worries on your mind, and trying to juggle daily life. Mindfulness helps you to focus on one thing at a time, to take time and to find pleasure in simple tasks, bringing a sense of calm to the day.
