Within counselling I work with individuals, couples, families, children and young people.  When working with children they must be at least 6 or 7 years of age and have some understanding of themselves, this is something I would be able to do on meeting with them.

Although I work with all difficulties such as depression, anxiety, addiction, bereavement and many others, I do have a specialist interest and extensive experience of working with people on the autistic spectrum (Aspergers and Autistic Spectrum Disorder), also with trauma, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and pain management.

I offer short, medium and long-term treatments. Short term treatments is usually 6-8 sessions and looks at the here and now, using various techniques such as CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) to help change the thought process and behaviours to cope with your difficulties.  Medium term treatments will include using some of the short term techniques, but also have a look at what may have triggered the difficulty in the first place. Whereas long term treatments will have us looking and working on a much deeper level, of helping you to understand where these issues stem from and how to overcome them.  This kind of treatment may include transactional analysis, psycho-dynamic therapy.  I also use other modalities or types of therapy in a humanist or psycho-therapeutic way I will be guided entirely by yourself as to how you wish to work.  This does not mean you are required to tell me what type of counselling you wish, only to give me an idea of how long or how in-depth you would like to understand your difficulty and I will do the rest.

Price on request, with some concessional rates for those on low income.
