About me

I help people experiencing, stress, low confidence, poor self esteem, abuse and relationship issues recover and take control of their lives.
Having worked in private practice, statutory and the voluntary sector for over 16 years I have extensive experience of working with a wide range of issues.

As a person centred counsellor, I believe passionately that we all do know, somewhere within ourselves, the directions we need to take. In a warm, supportive and friendly environment, I will help you to discover what those directions might be.
Counselling can be short term or long term - depending on what you want to talk about and what you decide.

Counselling with me can help you to:

  • Find a way forward
  • Acknowledge the continuing impact of past experiences and explore how to become less affected by them
  • Discover, accept and love who you are on the inside as well as the outside
  • Increase your confidence and self esteem
  • Illuminate opportunities that lies ahead

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I am a certified poetry therapist; (CPT), I facilitate writing for wellbeing groups and therapeutic writing groups and workshops in the Community, Schools and FE Colleges.

Poetry Therapy is the intentional use of poetry and other forms of literature for healing and personal growth. Research over the last 30 years has found links between writing, health and wellbeing.

I am passionate about how words can be used to bring about healing and transformation.
