Does life feel like its getting on top of you?

Could you benefit from a place to take some time-out?

… to explore your thoughts and feelings

Registered member of BACP since 2004 and Accredited Member since 2012 and in practice as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist, Coach and Clinical Supervisor with over sixteen years experience. I am experienced in working with people providing Counselling, Psychotherapy and Clinical Supervision services in a safe, confidential, generative and non-judgmental environment. I work with a systemic approach and integrate EMDR into my practice for the treatment of trauma. I also have a full, enhanced AccessNI Disclosure.

I work with both individuals and couples with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully. Having the right person to talk to when you really need to talk can be a life changing experience. I see clients face-to-face in Omagh and Belfast, and online throughout the UK.

Making the decision to see a counsellor is a big step to take – but it can be a positive one. Please read on to find out more about how I could help you.

How can counselling help?

Speak in Confidence

Counselling takes place in a safe environment, where we can meet with sensitivity and empathy – and without judgement. In the therapy space thoughts and feelings can be expressed freely and in confidence.

A problem shared…

Trouble with a relationship; anxiety or panic attacks; mood swings or depression – many people face difficulties in their everyday lives that can be hard to get on top of. Counselling gives us a deeper understanding of self, insight and opportunities for healing we can use to help gain a better understanding of what’s causing these problems – and how you can move towards managing or resolving them.

Make better, healthier new choices

Working together we can gain greater insight into the difficulties you are facing, helping you understand why you act or react and see how you can start to make better responses and heathier choices moving forward.

A safe setting…

I offer a chance to reflect on the difficulties or problems you are experiencing in a safe and confidential environment, with an independent and impartial listener from outside your day-to-day life.

Together we can explore your situation in a way that leads to fresh perspectives – and perhaps a new understanding of yourself. Therapy isn’t about giving you solutions or advice, but empowering you to make your own changes.

Get in touch

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about how counselling works, or to arrange an initial assessment appointment. This enables us to discuss the reasons you are thinking of coming to counselling, whether it could be helpful for you and whether I am the right therapist to help. You can also call me on 07775 706907 if you would prefer to leave a message or speak to me first.

Currently I work online and via telephone but will resume face-to-face sessions in 2022.

In addition to providing face-to-face therapy in Omagh and Belfast, I also offer telephone counselling and online sessions for clients across the UK via Zoom or Skype. Contact me to find out more about how online therapy works.
