Therapy for You

Hello and thank you for choosing Therapy for You.

I recognise that taking the first step to finding a therapist for counselling or psychotherapy can be both challenging and difficult and just how important it is to find a therapist that you feel comfortable and confident in.
I offer a confidential safe space free from judgement where you can explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviour’s and discover options for resolution, acceptance and positive change.

I don’t promise miracles or unrealistic outcomes but I do offer 30 years experience drawn from my work both in therapeutic and clinical settings across both public and charitable sectors.
Whilst recognising everyone’s uniqueness, I develop your inherent strengths, identify choices and help you to effect positive transformation, resolution and change.
I am happy to have a conversation with you before you book an assessment to answer any questions or concerns and for you to see if I am the right therapist for you.
