About me

Feeling not quite like your usual self and need someone non judgemental, unbiased, warm, caring and empathic to talk to? We all need space and time to be able to talk and process our feelings. Our feelings, if not clear, can make us confused, unhappy and we are often not sure why. How often do we give enough time to ourselves in our busy lives to be able to really consider how we are feeling?

I offer Counselling sessions in a safe, comfortable homely and highly confidential environment.  My independant Service name is Just Being Human Counselling. Your appointments will take place in an area with private parking in a cul de sac location and with easy access and plenty of parking.

I am a qualified BACP registered Therapeutic Person Centred Counsellor and I currently practice in the Coventry and Warwickshire areas.I use a wide range of Counselling skills, Person Centred, Solution Focused and Mindfulness to meet the needs of all my clients.

I have experience in supporting people through various life issues. Being experienced in many areas, some of which are attachments, depression, anxiety, work related stress, life stress, family issues, relationship difficulties, panic attacks, low self-esteem, confidence issues and young people.
