About me

I believe counselling can help us to understand and process difficult feelings and past-hurts, build our sense of self-worth and help us accept and value ourselves.

As well as my private work, I am an experienced NHS counsellor specialising in sexuality, gender and sexual health and I have a depth of experience in working with all genders including working with young people and older adults across a wide range of issues such as relationships, loss, anxiety, depression and stress.

I have also counselled within a university setting as well as for a local carer's project. Please contact me if you would like more information about myself or counselling, if you have any questions, or if you would like a free telephone consultation.

I currently work within buildings that are accessed via stairs. If this is a problem for you please let me know and I will do my very best to find a space we can meet that will be accessible for you.

“When the other person is hurting, confused, troubled, anxious, alienated, terrified; or when he or she is doubtful of self-worth, uncertain as to identity, then understanding is called for. The gentle and sensitive companionship of an empathic stance… provides illumination and healing. In such situations deep understanding is, I believe, the most precious gift one can give to another.”
Carl R. Rogers
