Online Counselling


Sometimes clients simply want to email me about their problems and get my thoughts. This really works well for very busy people or sometimes simply as a starting point when unsure as to whether they want/need regular or skype counselling sessions. Many clients like to have the discussion saved on their computer so that they can re read it at times when they need it. It can be a very effective tool.

As human beings, everyone experiences difficult times in their life. We can often feel down, sad, angry, afraid, frustrated, confused, tired. Sometimes, life can really throw us and we simply have no idea how to cope. This often passes by itself, but should it not, it can be helpful to seek professional help. There are a variety of reasons why a person can end up struggling emotionally in their life. I can help you to explore the source of your problems and navigate your way to feeling good again. Counselling can help you to get insight and advice, to share your struggle and gain perspective, to learn new skills and to strengthen what you already know. I always work with my clients in a warm, compassionate, respectful, direct and confidential manner.
