About me

Counselling can enable you to express yourself and to be yourself. I will listen in an empathic and non-judgemental way, giving you space and time to focus on your needs, and to explore any issues you wish to discuss privately which in turn can help you achieve insight for growth and personal development.

If you think you would benefit from counselling please contact me and I will respond as soon as I can. I can usually offer an initial appointment within a week. At the initial appointment, we will meet to see how we can work together, and if so, we will contract to further work. I can offer short or longer term counselling.

I practice integrative counselling which means the focus is on your individual needs. I deal with all relationship issues, as well as anxiety, depression, addictions and trauma and I have experience of working with a wide variety of different issues in my clinical practice. I am a registered BACP counsellor qualified to see clients age 18 and upwards.

Training, qualifications & experience
