About me


Sometimes in life we can reach a point when we feel unable to cope, everyday tasks can suddenly feel overwhelming and life can feel an upward battle. Maybe you've experienced something like a loss or trauma, difficulties with a work colleague, a relationship breakup or you've been assigned a project at work which overwhelms you. Or maybe you feel anxious or depressed and struggling to see a way forward.

I offer a safe, confidential and quiet space to help you to explore your difficulties with a view to hopefully moving you to a position where you can feel more in control of your life again.

I can facilitate you to understand different aspects of your life, your own behavior and the issues that are preventing you from enjoying life.

We can explore both general and specific problems. I have extensive experience working with, Relationships Issues, Depression, Anxiety, Affairs and betrayals, Family issues, Self-confidence, Self-esteem, Work-related stress, Life changes, Loss of identity.

I also specialise in working with issues around Dyslexia: The Emotional repercussion, anxiety, Bullying (in the work place, at home or in the social setting) and Work Related pressures and stress.

We can work together enabling you to have a better understanding of yourself and the relationships you have with others.

I offering both short and long-term Counselling & Coaching

Counselling is not about giving advice. It is to enable you to find your own path, to address the cause of the problem and not just treat the symptoms.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Dyslexia Aware Counselling and Coaching

Dyslexia can impact in ways much greater and more far reaching than the obvious ones. These can and do cause great psychological Distress, Depression, Despondency, Anxiety, Panic, Social alienation, Relationships, Self esteem, Emotional de-regulation, Anger, Shame, Embarrassment and Guilt.

All the emotions described are of course felt in certain situations by all human beings, not just dyslexic people. One of the challenges in counselling Dyslexic indivduals is knowing where to stop disentangling dyslexia-related issues from more general anxieties.

The emotional side of coming to terms through the life course with all the elements of dyslexia is one of the most commonly missed areas. Teachers and parents are very good at noticing problems around eduational devolopment, but what they can miss is the growing element of lack of motivation, low self-esteem and upset. This can have an ongoing effect throughout ones life as you never grow out of dyslexia - if you are dyslexic you will be so for life.

Why is counselling and coaching useful?

Dyslexic indivdiuals have difficulties in expressing feelings and thoughts, often becoming confused, because they do not have the skills to verbalise these thoughts effectively.

Individual Therapeutic coaching can facilitate a greater understanding of dyslexic difficulties and fully recognise their true strength. As a result the dyslexic person will become less defensive and more able in both professional and social life, to confront the world in an assertive and confident way rather than an aggressive and defensive one.
