About me

I offer a warm, safe and confidential space for you to be listened to.

I work at your pace helping you to explore what you really want both from the counselling therapy and then concentrating more specifically on areas in your life/relationships you'd like to change or improve.

If you have problems that keep going around and around in your head. If you are unhappy and can't identify why. If you are really struggling to cope with life :-

Counselling can offer an amazingly good emotional release, offering you the comfort of feeling truly listened to. I will endeavour to offer empathy and be completely non-judgemental of whatever information you bring to the session.
