Control The Controllable's
I provide professional counselling in a relaxed environment. This includes counselling in many areas in a persons life, working with issues such as Anxiety, Depression, Addiction, Stress, Abusive Relationships, Bullying, Grief/Loss and Suicide Prevention.
Each client starts where they feel they need to be once the appointment is made. The first step is making that call and deciding to put yourself first, possibly for the first time in your life.

Therapy & Counselling
Four years ago sparked by my own challenges in life, I decided to make a positive change in my career path and pursue an educational journey into the field of counselling and psychotherapy.
Having completed a Diploma in Addiction Studies, I further developed my skill set through completion of a BA (Hons) in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Why Attend Therapy?
Therapy provides a safe, caring, non-judgemental and supportive space which allows people to explore issues within their life that are currently causing distress. Therapists use different approaches and interventions to suit the requirements of the client. The goal within the therapeutic relationship is to help the client work towards making more positive choices.
Therapy I provide, include, Person Centred Therapy (PCT). This approach views the client as the expert within their own experience. It also believes the client is fully capable of experiencing his or her full potential.
Choice Therapy (CT)
Choice Theory (CT), this is based on 5 basic needs that drives all behaviours. The needs are survival, belonging, freedom, power and fun. Issues arise when one or more of the needs are not met by the client. CT maintains that we can only control our own behaviour and not that of others. Through this method of treatment, I encourage the client to learn and understand all components to make more positive choices in life.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
The individual’s beliefs are strongly affected by their emotional functioning. This therapy explores the acting, thinking and feeling and physiology choices we make in our thinking.
CBT provides a model of understanding, the relationships between our thoughts, feelings, behaviour or actions and how we physically feel within ourselves. Furthermore, this approach focuses on developing a deeper understanding of the thought patterns and behaviours maintaining a problem. CBT can help the client in the following areas:
- Confidence and Self Esteem
