Do you feel anxious or overwhelmed by life?

Are you losing confidence in your relationships?

Are you afraid that you will never reach your potential?

Do you often feel that you are failing or misunderstood?

You are not alone. It is natural to have these feelings. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Transform your life with a professional counsellor.

With my effective counselling service online and in Tavistock, I can support and help you to transform your life!

I will join you on your journey of emotional and mental health recovery. Together we can then explore alternative ways to cope and, ultimately, thrive.

Tavistock Counselling can help you to create changes in the way you think, feel and behave to bring about much needed improvements in your mental and emotional wellbeing. I will offer space and time for you to safely explore and reflect on deep rooted feelings, beliefs and your need for relief so that you can achieve emotional repair at a deep and long-lasting level.

Sessions can be held in person, online or using video or telephone calls. Reaching you wherever you are, my philosophy is to work within a therapeutic relationship supported by boundaries that help, rather than barriers that do not.

Results of effective therapy:

Having higher self-esteem, self-acceptance, and self-love

Being happier and less anxious!

Regaining trust and faith in yourself

What is counselling and how it can help me?

Therapy, also called psychotherapy or counselling, is the process of talking with a therapist to explore behaviours, thoughts and feelings in order to alleviate distress relating to the relationship with self or others, and/or somatic responses (sensations in the body).

Beginning therapy can be a big step toward developing the healthiest version of yourself and living the best life possible — no matter what challenges you may be facing, therapy can help you to develop resilience and the ability to respond in ways that help you to stay well.

Through therapy, you can develop a sense of self, challenge harmful thinking, resolve painful feelings, improve your relationships, and much more.

It can help you with:



Loss and Bereavement

Relationship Issues​

Low Self-esteem

and many other struggles.
