About me

Welcome ... At some time in our lives we can all do with a little extra help and talking to someone who is trained can make a real difference, no matter how difficult that might seem today.  

I help people of all ages, from all walks of life and with a wide range of difficulties. in particular i have a wealth of experience working with those who suffer more deep seated and longstanding difficulties such as: anxiety, depression, abuse and trauma.

Also helping couples struggling to make their relationship work, specializing in communication breakdown and those having parenting issues.    

i have a down to earth, mature and positive approach to helping and offer you a safe, non judgmental relationship in which we can explore together with you knowing i'll approach what may be difficult for you compassionately.  

I appreciate, finding answers doesn’t always come easily and imagining change or a different future when you don't feel at your best, can be difficult at times. So never forgetting how i felt when i couldn't find my own answers and was stuck, i'll support you well, work at your pace,and from day one help you find ways to cope as we work towards your goal.

I'm passionate about your well being, inspired by my experiences,"know my stuff" and care you get what you come for.

What now...

I know getting started and deciding if you want counselling can often be the most difficult step. That's why If you'd like to contact me, we can set up an initial no obligation session. You can talk about what you want to get from counseling, ask any questions and this is an opportunity for me to get a 3D picture of how i can help.

Then if you think i can help you, we can agree a second session and arrange to meet regularly..

Further information

One of my particular areas of research and interest is helping those who have suffered with a long held difficult or traumatic experience; such as living with sexual, physical or emotional abuse from childhood.

This can lead to self limiting ways of being, angry reactions that come from nowhere, depression, low self esteem and physical illness and sometimes a permanent state of anxiety.
