About me

I am qualified to provide one to one counselling to everyone ... children, teenagers and adults. Counselling gives you a confidential place to go, someone to talk to, someone who will listen, and someone to explore your difficulties with, someone non-judgmental.

If you think Counselling could help you please read more about me and what I offer and feel free to contact me for an informal and confidential discussion.

I have been working as a Counsellor for 10 years. I have worked for local charity organisations based in Sandwell Wolverhampton and Dudley. I have also worked as a Counsellor and a Mentor with young people in several schools, colleges and educational settings providing confidential one to one creative, therapeutic counselling support.

I moved into working in educational settings where I supported adults, teenagers and children through their progress through school or college. I worked with both clients and their families to identify barriers, support and encourage personal progress through life. I also have extensive experience of working in the charity sector for organisations who provide therapeutic services to vulnerable people in the local community with a range of people from a diverse ethnic backgrounds. I have a good knowledge of the social issues that local communities face and the support systems in place in each local areas.
