About me

Are you feeling anxious, stressed, unhappy, lonely? Are you having relationship difficulties which you are struggling to deal with?
All kinds of things happen during our life and sometimes it can feel like a real challenge and our feelings become overwhelming.
Talking to a counsellor about concerns and worries without feeling judged or criticised can really make a difference.
Here you can talk in a safe confidential space and explore your thoughts and feelings.
You can work in a way that's suitable to you as a unique individual. Talking to a trained counsellor can help you to view life's events and relationships in different ways. You could with support, work on gaining fresh strategies which could really help you to cope with and manage whatever happens in your life from now onwards or make the changes you really want.

I'm experienced in working with people of all ages and with a variety of issues including: Anxiety, Depression, Anger, Relationship concerns, Abuse, Autism (scroll down to see full list)

Counselling/therapy to suit your needs and your situation.

Talking and sharing your ideas with someone who listens to you without judgement can really help you gain a greater understandping of yourself and what you want from your life. Working together in a safe confidential space is supportive and empowering.
