About me

Hello and welcome

I believe that with the right support we  all have the capacity to grow and experience a more satisfied and fulfilled life. I can help you if you are experiencing low moods, stress, anxiety, panic attacks or relationship difficulties.  I can also help if you are grieving due to the loss of  something or someone significant and your life has temporarily lost it’s vitality and meaning.  Counselling can support you to explore these and other issues, providing insights into your life and offering you opportunities for lasting change

How can I help you

I am a warm, friendly and empathic counsellor who offers a safe, open and non judgemental space where you can express and clarify your deepest feelings. i can help you on your voyage of self discovery. We’ll explore how you engage and respond to others and how  unconscious habits from your past and  present are impacting on you,  as you try to make sense of your situation.

Member organisations


Accredited register membership



Each weekly session lasts 50 minutes and takes place preferably at the same time.  My fee is £45 per session. I can sometimes offer concessions to those on a lower wage.

After the initial phone consultation and our first meeting together we should both be able to identify issues, and decide whether to proceed and work together. If we decide to continue counselling sessions, I then believe at least six - eight sessions are a realistic commitment, after which we can assess if more sessions are needed.

I offer both open ended and time limited counselling
