Stress effects people in many different ways and I have found that no one approach suits every person. Poorly managed stress can effect us physically, emotionally and behaviourally with symptoms ranging from headaches, fatigue, irritability, fear of failure or fear of the unknown, panic attacks, sleep issues, coping difficulties, breathing and digestive disorders, to name but a few.
I use a realistic approach to finding simple but effective management of stress. I especially recognize that each person requires an individual approach, therefore, I do not use a ‘one size fits all’ programme.
Over the years, I have developed my methods, drawing on many aspects of psychology, counselling and classic stress management techniques in order to offer a balanced and an individual way forward. This allows you to get through the day successfully and to gain a positive future by helping to bring a perspective to resolve previous issues and recognize unhelpful coping methods. Working together we will identity, confront and learn to manage your life stress in a constructive and realistic way forward.

I started practising Stress Management within the clinic in 1990. Whilst still working in the sphere of stress management, I sought a deeper understanding of the psychological process in relation to mental health.
This led me to undertake my degree in Psychology followed by my second degree in Counselling. The additional education and more specialist training in various schools of psychology allowed me to expand the repertoire of therapeutic techniques and now practice Counselling and Psychotherapy for a wide range of emotional, psychological and relationship issues.
