About me

All of us, at certain points in our lives will experience situations which are difficult to overcome alone. Most of the problems we struggle with involve relationships whether it is at home with partners and family,at work,school, college or with friends. These issues can leave us feeling very alone, anxious, frightened and stressed. Counselling provides a safe place to talk, to make sense of feelings and help you work out what you want for yourself.


I can help you on a one to one basis  deal with issues that are having an impact on your relationships such as depression, anxiety, bereavement, past sexual abuse, alcohol and drugs.
i can also help you find a way to come to terms with life changes such as retirement, job loss and chronic illness or maybe you feel lost or stuck and need help to, reach some clarity, a different perspective and to find a way forward.

If you come as a couple or as an individual I can work with you  to untangle the issues that are getting in the way of you having a good fulfilling relationship  or I can offer support to work on a specific problem such as communication or dealing with the ending of a relationship or problems finding the right relationship.
