About me

Life can be difficult at times for us all, I believe that counselling can help to ease the burdens life often lays upon us.

My experience in the counselling world has given me the privilege of working with people of various cultural backgrounds and ages. Assisting others in finding some balance in their lives is an honour, I am very grateful to be able to do such work.

If you are feeling that counselling may help you to deal with something which is difficult for you, please feel free to contact me for an initial chat. Whether you decide to work with me or not is your decision, my work is very client-led and open ended in terms of number of sessions you may wish to attend for.

I also run my own dog behaviour business, therefore if you have a phobia of dogs I can assist you in this also.

Your first session is charged at a reduced fee of £25 and you are not obliged to continue into more sessions unless you wish to.

Subsequent sessions are charged as stated in my fees section.

Thank you for taking time to read my profile, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask me.
