Counselling and Psychotherapy in Guernsey
I offer a professional, confidential and caring service for adults and young people who want to improve their mental health and emotional wellbeing.
I regularly help people with Depression, Anxiety, panic attacks, Phobias, Trauma / PTSD / Dissociation, OCD, Anger, and current or historical sexual, psychological or physical Abuse, as well as many other personal issues affecting mental health (More information in this link).
I also offer Performance Coaching to help people with work or sport psychology - winning the mental game.
I start with a Person Centred approach and may integrate aspects of the following:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Exposure Response Prevention, Acceptance/Commitment,
Dialectic Behavioural Therapy,
Neuro Linguistic Programming & the Rewind Technique.
Breath and control of the nervous system through focussed breathing.
I also use creative methods where appropriate and if you are comfortable to do so. With children/young people I may draw on more creative and play-oriented processes rather than relying purely on one-to-one discussion.
I am solution focussed - sometimes it is important to spend time talking about what has happened and sometimes it is better to be challenged, to process and to move to a better place.
My consulting room - located near the bottom of the market steps in St. Peter Port - is convenient for people working in town, whilst with parking and the bus terminus close by, it is accessible from the rest of the island.
Please contact me today via email or text to find out more or to arrange an initial meeting. Contact details are at the top of the page or click here for my address.
My phone is kept on 'silent' so please either text or email me and I will get back to you when I can.
