About me

Hello. I work with both adults and children and my aim is to take the negative associations and mystery out of counselling. I know from personal experience how difficult it can be talking to a stranger about things you may not have told anyone else.

All counsellors are different and have their own way of working. I like to think I have a realistic, down to earth approach and this is how I do it:

Our first contact will be by phone for a 30 minute assessment. From your point of view, this is to find out whether you feel comfortable with me and whether I work in a way that suits you. For me, this is to find out what your expectations are and to explain to you about confidentiality, cost, duration of sessions etc. If we decide to continue, we can discuss when, where and how often we meet.

The sessions will take place in a quiet, private room, however, I can also do home or school visits providing there is a suitable room for us to work in.

The most important aspect of counselling is the relationship between client and counsellor, if you don't trust me then how can you be honest about your thoughts and feelings? When working with children, it becomes a three-way relationship because parents/guardians can have a big impact on the efficacy of therapy.

Feel free to text, phone or email me with any questions. If I'm unavailable, please leave a message and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Please be aware that I do not accept calls from withheld numbers.
