About me

I am a warm and experienced counsellor who helps you to explore any personal difficulties or unhelpful feelings/behaviours you may be experiencing in life to help improve your overall well-being.

By working together in a safe and professional setting, I can help you to gain clarity and understanding about yourself or issues that concern you so you are able to move forward in life, make new choices and achieve your goals, whatever they may be.

I offer a free 15 minute 'meet me' consultation as I feel the quality of the relationship between us is vital for positive outcomes in counselling.  

I can help with:

Relationship Issues
Anxiety
Anger Management
Abuse
Child Related Issues
Depression
Bereavement & Loss
Trauma & PTSD
Low Self Esteem/Confidence Issues
Feeling sad and struggling with life but being unsure why

I specialise in counselling young people and online counselling for those who may find it difficult to attend face to face sessions due to reasons such as location, disability or anxiety. I hold a Diploma in Online Counselling and I am currently a tutor for Online Training for Counsellors Ltd.

I work with individual adults, young people (age 11+) and couples including people with disabilities and special needs. My premises are accessible for wheelchair users.

Everyone is different with individual needs I will work with you on the best way forward for you. Whatever your needs, I will provide support for you during times of change and uncertainty whilst helping you gain strength and identify your inner resources.

My background is in Human Resources, management and administration.  Due to some life changing experiences and a journey through counselling myself; I wanted to offer others the opportunity to experience the rewards I gained from a professional, therapeutic relationship.
