About me

Thank you for viewing my profile.

Making a choice to see a counsellor is the first step towards wanting to make a change in your life. At certain times in our lives we need support and speaking to a trained professional can be helpful. I provide a counselling service for adults with a wide range of emotional, relational and psychological difficulties. I provide a safe non-judgmental environment for clients to engage in therapy and feel the freedom to explore. I have 6 years experince working as a counsellor for Organisations and working in Private Practice.

I have worked at a variety of organisations offering counselling on a 1-1 basis. I have worked with a range of clients dealing with a wide range of issues, some of which are:

  • Depression
  • Postnatal Depression (PND)
  • Anxiety
  • Loss and Grief
  • Identity issues
  • PTSD (Post traumatic stress disorder)
  • Domestic Abuse, Arranged Marriage
  • OCD (Obsessive compulsive disorder)
  • Addictions
  • Low self esteem
  • Cultural issues
  • I have also worked with diagnosed mental health issues.

It's not uncommon for some clients to come to counselling for one issue, only to realise how much helps them - fueling a desire to work at a much deeper level with more complex issues that have been troubling them. Many clients who attend counselling gain a great deal of confidence, which in turn enables them to grow and develop many skills to deal with day to day issues.

I also have experience in working with young children as young as 5+ in school settings. I have skills to work with young children and understand that working with children is different to working with adults. I have worked with children dealing with loss and grief children under the care of social services, bullying, identity issues, attachment issues and low self esteem/confidence etc.

Are you suffering from anxiety or depression?

Are you struggling with anger management or

What is counselling?

Is a form of psychological therapy that offers people a chance to change how they feel and to live better life. Counselling is also helpful for people who are feeling lost, have suffered loss or might want to go on a personal journey to explore their life.

  • Do I need counselling?
    You may need need counselling if you feel you that you want to self-explore find some answers to life, have a closure, overcome a loss, lack confidence or self-esteem, or find that you are facing difficulties in your day to day life.

  • How does counselling help?
    Regular counselling will enable you to find some answers for yourself, come to terms with any difficulties, have a closure from certain problems and hopefully make some positive changes to your life.
