Life’s difficulties and upset can come from a variety of sources and may present themselves in many ways. I will help you address these issues by providing a confidential space to focus on what is causing you concern, helping you find the answers you want or need so your challenges can be resolved so you can live a more happy and fulfilling life.
I have experience of working with client issues including anxiety, depression, loss and bereavement, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem and self-confidence to stress and work related difficulties. I also have experience of working with people suffering chronic health issues including terminal illness, and their relatives and friends.
Counselling is a unique experience for each individual. There is plenty of support to show that counselling helps to find solutions and provide relief from negative feelings and problems

I am a fully qualified counsellor/therapist and am on the Accredited Register of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP Reg No 206220). All my work is supervised in accordance with the BACP guidelines. I work to the BACP ethical framework and fully adhere to its code of ethics.
I work integratively meaning that I draw from a variety of therapeutic approaches to suit you, your personality, difficulties and all round life experience.
Please note the contact number is not monitored 24 hrs so please leave a message and I will call you back as soon as I can. I aim to do this within 24 hours.
