About me

When life becomes difficult, it can sometimes be easier to talk to someone who is not personally involved. It can help to have someone to talk to who isn’t a friend or relative. I provide a welcoming, supportive, confidential and non-judgmental space for you to explore and work through issues that are affecting you.

My formal training is in integrative counselling, which means that I work from a base of different theoretical approaches. This allows me to practice in a flexible and open way that is unique for every client. You may wish to look at feelings around a specific or repeated problem (e.g. relationship issues, bereavement, abuse, anxiety, depression, stress or family issues) or you may have a general feeling that you could be getting more out of life and feel more fulfilled. We can work together to help you achieve this. At the heart of my work is the relationship that develops between my clients and I.

Couple or relationship counselling

Couples seek counselling support for many different reasons: worries that their relationship or marriage is failing in some way; a sense that they would like to improve their communication or perhaps increase or change their approach to intimacy. Couple or relationship counselling can offer a safe, non-judgmental environment within which to explore difficult issues, with the help of a supportive and impartial person. I can offer a confidential and supportive space where couples can undertake this work together.

I passionately believe that people can grow and change, no matter how difficult their situation may seem. Counselling can offer you a chance to change how you feel, begin to live differently and help you to make positive choices about your future.
