Welcome to Liberate Counselling

I imagine you have arrived here because you are struggling with anxiety or depression and are looking for some kind of talking therapy to help you get your life back to normal.

Anxiety and depression are the two most common mental health problems in the UK (N.I.C.E., 2016).


Feeling unsure about yourself, being unduly worried about the future, overthinking and lack of sleep are signs of anxiety. The physical symptoms associated with this plague such as heart palpitations, sweaty palms, nausea, dry mouth etc. are equally debilitating at times.

My clients usually find their anxiety decreases after a few counselling sessions, and confidence and calm begin to return.


Sufferers tend to sleep too much, feel a lack of worth and that they are living in the past. Phrases like "my black dog" or being "in a deep hole" are common expressions people with depression use to describe how they see it.

A few sessions in counselling start to make a difference to how people see everything and then life begins to feel worth living again.

It helps to talk

You may want to confide in someone but it isn't easy to find someone who will not judge you. It is also hard to find someone who will not offer advice.

Perhaps right now you just need someone to listen to you and offer acceptance - someone to encourage you to talk about whatever troubles you so that you can share your burden in privacy and confidentiality.

As a counsellor, my aim would be to help you explore your thoughts and feelings so you can make sense of everything and see the yourself and the world in a different light.

Many people have turned their lives around with my help.

See someone soon

You could begin on the very day you make first contact with me for telephone or online counselling, or if you prefer face-to-face counselling it could be as soon as two days later.

A free 30 minutes' telephone call is available to get a feel for what it would be like talking to me. Just contact me to arrange it.

Professional Standards

I am qualified, have plenty of experience and I adhere to the Ethical Frameworks of the BACP (The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and ACTO (The Association for Counselling and Therapy Online).

My work is supervised and I undertake Continuing Professional Development courses to enhance the quality of service I provide.

The road to recovery?

It might be hard to imagine from where you are now, but the fact you are looking for professional help is a positive step.

"A journey of a thousand miles starts with one step."

(Chinese sage, 6th Century B.C.)

You have already taken that first step.
Why not take another one?
