COUNSELLING & PSYCHOTHERAPY SERVICES
I have extensive experience of providing Counselling and Psychotherapy to adults with a wide variety of life, relationship and mental health difficulties.
Therapy is time set aside by us to talk about the issues that have
made you seek therapy.
Therapy might include talking about past and present life events, your feelings, emotions,
relationships, ways of thinking and patterns of behaviour. We will look at your concerns and between us identify the best course of action for you, which might be helping you to resolve your difficulties or to find ways of coping.

Addiction refers to a difficulty in controlling certain repetitive behaviours to the extent that they have harmful consequences. They are the result of powerful compulsions to use and do certain things excessively, often out of a need to escape from upsetting emotions or situations. These compulsions can trigger a self-perpetuating process, which can cause pain and suffering not only for those with the problem, but for their loved ones too.
"Addiction is less about giving up something and more about gaining something, that something is a more meaningful, authentic and connected life. Addiction takes things, recovery gives them back, including; self-esteem, love for and from self and others, meaning, passion, ability to deal with life’s challenges, healing, and hope".
