About me

“Nurturing the inner you in a client focused environment”

I offer an initial meeting that gives you a chance to understand how I work and what to expect and importantly how therapy may help you.
This can help you feel clearer and more certain about your decision to start counselling or psychotherapy.

I am an experienced and registered counsellor and psychotherapist skilled at building warm, safe, therapeutic relationships in which we can talk about the issues that are concerning you. I aim to establish a counselling relationship and an environment within which you feel safe and encouraged to explore whatever issues or concerns you bring. I will work with you respectfully and without judgment. Together we can decide how long we will meet and how I can best help you.

About me

I am fully trained as a Person centered and Humanistic therapist. Prior to my career as a counsellor and psychotherapist I spent 20 years’ working within the health and education industry both as a support and advocacy employee working within the community in both school, home and private settings. Supporting both adults, family and young people both within families and singularly in the areas of addiction, pregnancy, nurturing family development and behavioral issues.

These experiences have encouraged and inspired me and through this I made the decision to further develop my skill set, enhancing how I worked and what I could offer both personally and professionally to my clients. This change of direction began my journey to be a holistic, diverse and a creative counsellor.

How I can help

Sometimes we can feel overwhelmed by the difficulties and confusions that we face in our lives. As a result we may not be able to talk to anyone around us about these challenges, which can leave us feeling isolated and alone. I am experienced in working individually with clients concerned with many areas,

  • Anxiety and fear
  • Bereavement
  • Crisis
  • Grief
  • LGBT issues
  • Life development
  • Loss and bereavement
  • Low self-confidence
  • Relationship & family issues
  • Sexuality
  • Stress
  • Trauma

I have a particular interest in Attachment, Bonding and Maternal depression. I offer counselling to parents who would like support in coping with issues relating to pregnancy
such as adjustment to pregnancy, acceptance, body image, birth experience, trauma and pregnancy loss (miscarriage, stillbirth and neonatal death)

Choosing to seek help can feel daunting but working with someone who is professionally trained to listen and offer support in a non-judgmental environment can provide a unique opportunity in which to be understood. Exploring our problems like this can enable clarity and as such effect change.

How long will it take?

Some people find that a few sessions are all they need, and some people need longer.  I recommend a minimum of 4- 6 sessions, but there is no time limit - you can take as long or as short as you feel is right for you. We can discuss this at your first session by looking at your needs
