About me

I am a qualified Integrative counsellor experienced in using techniques from a range of therapies. This enables me to tailor my approach to the individual needs of the client.

I provide a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space to enable you to explore your thoughts and feelings.

I have helped clients experiencing many issues including: domestic violence and abuse, relationship difficulties, family issues, depression, anxiety, stress, bereavement and loss, self harm, unemployment, lack of confidence and low self esteem.

I offer long and short term counselling face to face, online and over the telephone. The first session will be an assessment session and will be at a reduced rate. This will give you the opportunity to discuss what you hope to get from counselling and to ask any questions about the process.

Sessions last for 50 minutes and usually take place weekly.
