UPDATE: A number of Face to Face Sessions are currently available with safety measures in place.

Specialist in Face to Face, online and remote Therapies, supporting you with mental health issues such as Bereavement and Anxiety as a result of Covid19. At Borders I offer a Confidential Professional Counselling and CBT Service via online, telephone and face to face. I hold a current enhanced DBS certificate and am qualified to work with individuals, couples, organisations and Public Sector Services.

I currently work with a number of national Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP's) and Organisations who provide their employees with Counselling, Critical Incident & Trauma Response and Mandatory Supervision for Specialist Teams for which I have over 25 years experience.

I work with clients who have difficulties with a whole range of issues to reduce and prevent their sickness and absence and support return to work.
These often include work related stress, anxiety, overload and burnout, problematic relationships, loss, depression, low self esteem, bullying, lack of confidence & assertiveness, health concerns and many more that influence and affect daily life

What is Counselling?

The BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy) definition of counselling:- Counselling takes place when a counsellor sees a client in a private and confidential setting to explore a difficulty the client is having, distress they may be experiencing or perhaps their dissatisfaction with life, or loss of a sense of direction and purpose. It is always at the request of the client as no one can properly be 'sent' for counselling. I am an Accredited member of the BACP and work within their ethical framework and guidelines. I receive regular supervision in line with BACP requirements. For information visit:- www.bacp.co.uk.

Counselling and CBT can offer help and support with:

Anxiety and related feelings of panic,
Bereavement, grief and loss,
Couple Counselling and relationship breakdown,
Depression and low mood,
Eating Disorders,
Family issues and difficult dynamics,
Health related issues and terminal illness,
Lack of Confidence and Low Self Esteem,
Pet Bereavement, Relationship issues,
Breakdown in communication,
Work related issues,
Bullying and team issues


and many more issues...

Sessions will last approximately 1 hour.

An assessment will take place during the first session to identify what support you may require. This may take the form of brief work over approximately 6 to 8 sessions or longer term work in Counselling or CBT.
