About me

I come from a background of nursing, qualifying as a first level registered general nurse in 1987. Over the years I found myself developing a special interest in the individuals and families whose lives were touched by personal tragedy. I noticed ordinary people demonstrate remarkable acts of strength, courage and fortitude in the face of adversity. To this day I remain humbled by those who invited me to stay with them during private moments of distress, and perhaps even crisis. I believe it was during these times when I first learned how best to respond in a professional, yet real manner. This way of 'being' seems to help the success of my therapeutic work with others.

I now work as a qualified, experienced psychodynamic counsellor and offer an effective style of talking therapy recommended for psychological wellbeing. I love my work and aim to facilitate sessions to a very high standard, so you can get the best from my professional expertise and from your therapeutic experience. By talking together in confidence, I can help you understand why you might be thinking, feeling and doing those things that you do! Your understanding brings about opportunities for growth and change, and for an acceptance of what perhaps, cannot be changed. I know how powerful emotions are, especially if left unspoken. It helps to talk. 

Clients often tell me they enjoy the way I work and how helpful sessions are to their lives. Some clients arrive for counselling and after a short time of working together, find that unpleasant feelings, (to include those associated with stress or anxiety) no longer dominate their lives. Others embark upon a journey of self discovery to find new meaning, purpose and often a sense of deep fulfilment to their lives. I listen and actively engage with you so that you feel heard, understood and valued. This increases feelings of trust, self esteem, confidence, decision making etc., and helps to improve relationships. I feel confident in my ability to support you when you're feeling vulnerable. I strive to work sensitively with you, yet always in a consistent and purposeful way. I care and your feelings matter.
