A Rugby counsellor

Welcome to my website. If you’re looking for a counsellor or therapist for help for yourself and you live within reach of Rugby, do give me a call – I may be able to help. I’m always happy to hear from people, and even if I can’t help I may be able to direct you to another more suitable professional, or just have a chat about whether therapy would be right for you at this time in your life.

Why look for therapy?

Many of us, at varying points in our lives, can find ourselves feeling depressed, anxious, lost or struggling with a recent event or relationship. During these times it can feel overwhelming, and talking to a professional outside your family and friendship group can help. Just being able to let go, knowing that everything you say will be kept confidential, can be a very good start to making life better. A time each week, or more if necessary, will be set aside for you to come and share your story in a relaxed environment. This will be your space and time to be heard and understood.

An experienced and qualified counsellor/psychotherapist

I am an experienced and qualified counsellor/ psychotherapist with a practice room in Rugby. I offer a safe place for you to come and look at whatever it is that may be troubling you: a private and comfortable space where you can be yourself. Everything we talk about is confidential. I work either short or long term dependent upon your needs. I have helped people with anxiety, depression, relationships, bereavement and of course I see people with many other issues too. I have a special interest in how the body holds on to unexpressed emotion and physical symptoms that can result from this.

The decision to contact a therapist can feel like a big step. Feel free to explore my website, which I hope will help you in taking that step. You may like to look at the Therapy page which explains what therapy is like and how long it might take. The About Me page describes how I trained as a psychodynamic therapist and what that means. And for practical information about fees, how to get to me and so on, have a look at the Further Information page.

Can I help you?

If you think I may be able to help you, do contact me, either by email or by phone on or 07955757929. I’ll be pleased to hear from you. More details about the practicalities can be found on my ‘Further Information‘ page.
