About me

Choosing a therapist can be a daunting task whether this is your first time and you are not exactly sure what it is all about or whether you have had counselling in the past and are looking to return.

I offer a friendly, confidential and professional counselling service for adults and young people where you will be supported and encouraged to begin to make sense of how you are feeling during difficult times

I believe we all have an inborn ability and desire to grow towards fulfilling our true potential and that only we are the experts on our lives. The way I work reflects my own personal values, where I believe we all deserve genuine acceptance and respectful understanding. By providing the right space, time and support, individuals have an opportunity to become more self-aware, leading to greater confidence, improved relationships and empowerment
