About me

Are you feeling stressed, anxious and generally overwhelmed by your problems or fears? Are you struggling to see a way forward and just don't know where to turn? I know how scary that feels. After working in the hospitality industry for many years, I faced challenges in my own life and having benefited from counselling myself, I decided to transfer my skills to assisting others in this way.

How Counselling Can Help

By offering a safe, confidential space I can help you to explore your anxiety, concerns and feelings. Sometimes, speaking with someone impartial without the fear of upsetting or burdening them as you might with family or friends, can be helpful. As a counsellor I will not judge you but I will listen, respect and accept you as you are. As the client you are in control of what is discussed and the pace at which the therapy proceeds. At times counselling can be difficult and challenging as awkward feelings or perhaps painful memories may be experienced, however by working through and exploring these, change can be possible.


As an integrative counsellor, I use the following counselling approaches according to the individual needs of clients:

Person-centred - with the client at the heart of the process, believing everyone has the potential to grow                                   and develop towards achieving their potential.

CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) - seeking to change unhelpful thoughts and patterns of behaviour.

Psychodynamic - understanding how past events and actions can affect us in the present.


What To Expect

After an initial 30 minute assessment to gain an overview of your issues and to see if you feel we can work together, we would generally meet on a weekly basis. I offer six sessions initially however the number of sessions required depends on individual circumstances. A session lasts 50 minutes.
