About me

I know that people usually look for a counsellor at a time when they are feeling vulnerable so you may like to read a little bit about me before making an enquiry. I'm a Person Centred Counsellor which means I am compassionate and non-judgmental. Being a Counsellor is about listening carefully to people, helping them to work towards feeling better and empowering them to help themselves; that's what I seek to do. It's important that you feel comfortable with your counsellor and know that everything that's said is confidential. With that in mind, your first session with me will be free of charge; it's an opportunity for us to meet and for you to decide if you want to go ahead with counselling.

As a Registered and Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I work within an ethical framework which exists to maintain good standards of practice and to protect our clients.

I specialise in Person Centred Counselling, CBT and Bereavement Counselling and have spent more than eight years helping people work through a large variety problems including anxiety, depression, stress, bereavement, OCD, relationship problems, obesity etc. There's a comprehensive list at the bottom of the page
