About me

Welcome,

You have most probably come across this page as you are thinking about accessing counselling for yourself or for someone else. Counselling can be useful for anyone who feels that they need to talk or have problems they would like to resolve and there are very few issues that I won't be able to assist you with. I am here to listen to you with empathy and without judgement.

I have been counselling for over 5 years with my therapy experience covering a broad spectrum of areas; most recently within the NHS working with Anxiety and Depression and just prior to that working with survivors of Domestic Violence and Abuse. I currently run my private practice alongside working as a Counsellor for a private Occupational Health Company. I provide counselling for individuals for various issues including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, work stress, bereavement, life difficulties, low self-esteem. There will be very little than I am unable to help you with.

I am based in Leominster, Herefordshire, in a confidential and comfortable counselling room. I can also provide telephone/online therapy. I also provide counselling from a clinic in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire or can do home visits if necessary.

I understand that thinking about accessing Counselling/ Therapy can be very overwhelming therefore I keep this section brief to enable easier reading. However, please do take a look at my website for some more information. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have using the 'Email me' button on this site or the contact form on my website.
