About me

Life can be complex and bring different challenges which can affect many areas of our lives.

I am extremely passionate in helping you to deal with these challenges in order that you can lead a happier, more enjoyable life.

I am a fully qualified counsellor and a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I’m an Integrative Counsellor, using various therapies tailored to suit  your specific needs; including Person Centered, Emotionally Focused, Psychodynamic, Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP).

Thoughts and feelings have a real affect on ourselves, our behaviour and how we react and cope in all areas of our lives. I feel it is important to work through any challenges/ issues so we can move on and be happy with ourselves and with our lives.

I offer counselling to both individuals and couples over 18 years old.
I feel that being genuine,open and honest and building a professional relationship of trust with clients is key to successful outcomes for clients.
I am a very dedicated, genuine, professional who focuses on getting the best possible result for all my clients.
