About me

Hello and welcome to my profile.

There may be times in our lives when we feel an overwhelming anxiety, depression or low self-esteem. This may be evoked from a current or historic experience. You may be experiencing difficulties in a relationship. I believe that recognising how you are feeling and finding the strength to ask for help may be your first step towards finding some resolution.

My own experiences have allowed me to value the importance of counselling. I believe that having the space to talk through your issues, to feel accepted and not judged can be invaluable.The relationship is central to therapy.

I am a qualified Integrative counsellor. This allows me to bring together a variety of therapeutic approaches, in order to assist you in working towards a positive outcome .

I have considered experience in working with survivors of sexual and domestic abuse, as well as eating disorders and self harm.

I can offer you a relaxed, confidential and safe place to discuss your difficulties.I aspire to support you to gain some clarity on the issues which are causing you concern and to work towards a resolution.

You are welcome to contact me to make any enquiry without obligation.
