Private Practice


There are times in all our lives when we feel unable to cope.  


Sometimes the reason for this is clear and we know where to seek help but at other times it is more confusing.  It is at these times that counselling may be beneficial.  Talking to a counsellor who is impartial can help you work through your personal difficulties and find lasting solutions.


Without giving advice an effective counsellor will seek to enable you to find your own answers, empowering you to be more constructive in the way that you manage your feelings and behaviour. Allowing you to take more control of your life. Each client session will adopt a tailored approach to your individual needs and goals.


Mindfulness suggests that the mind is fully attending to what’s happening or to what you’re doing. That might seem trivial, except for the annoying fact that we so often veer from the matter at hand. Our mind takes flight, we lose touch with our body, and soon we’re engrossed in obsessive thoughts about something that just happened, in the past or we are fretting about the future … we are creating ‘movies’ in our head about things that have not happened. And that makes us anxious. 


Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.Yet no matter how far we drift away, mindfulness is right there to bring us back to where we are and what we’re doing and feeling. The best way to understand Mindfulness is to ... try it!


NLP - Neuro Lingustic Programming

NLP is frequently known as the "users manual for your mind". NLP gives us insights into how our thinking patterns can effect every aspect of our lives.


It looks at the way in which we think and process our thoughts (Neuro), the language patterns we use (Linguistic) and our behaviours (Programming) and how these interact to have a positive (or negative) effect on us as individuals.


NLP then offers is a range of methods and models which create an understanding of our thought process and behaviour. Understanding these techniques can bring about a positive change in ourselves and others.


Reiki is an original method of healing, developed by Mikao Usui in Japan early in the 20th century.  It is activated by intention and works on every level; emotional, mental, spiritual and physical.  The Japanese work Reiki means 'Universal Energy'. Eastern medicine has always recognised and worked with energy, which flows through all living things and vital to well-being.


Reiki can be a relaxing hands-on therapy removing blockages by using energy pathways through the Chakra centres and Meridian lines that are located throughout the body.  Reiki is a holistic approach to health and wellbeing.
