About me

Sometimes things just don’t seem right, we may feel angry, anxious or sad but don’t really know why. We can become ‘stuck’ in a way of life, a relationship or a career that is no longer rewarding. It can be difficult to talk these issues through with those who are closest to us, but equally the prospect of counselling may seem quite daunting. I understand this, and work in a warm, relational way, offering you the opportunity to talk things through in a safe and confidential environment. I will truly listen without judging or criticising you.

Do you feel stressed, worried, depressed, angry, confused, lost? Suffering from work-related problems, relationship difficulties, panic attacks, general anxiety? Does is seem that life has lost its spark? Talking things through with a trained professional can help you find your way.

I offer general counselling to adults and young people from 16 for a wide range of issues, such as life changes, relationships, work, low self-confidence, anxiety, stress, and bereavement. Teenagers often come for counselling because of the pressure of school work, friendship groups, eating issues, and family relationships. It can be really helpful for them to talk things through in confidence with someone who will truly listen and understand.

I also have a great interest in the human-companion animal bond, and understand how important a part our pets play in our lives. I offer counselling for pet-related issues, such as re-homing, treatment options, when to say goodbye, and pet bereavement.
