About me

Welcome ... I am an experienced counselor, offering short and longer term help and with significant experience in working with: deep seated and long standing difficulties, family matters, relational issues, abuse and trauma.    

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 what it was like when I couldn’t find my own answers, I’ll support you well, work at your pace, ensure your’ always in control of what we do and share and work together so you can get to where you want to be as quickly as possible.

I offer you a non judgmental and safe relationship and have a positive approach to helping you solve your difficulties and find answers, that are right for you and your life.

I love my work , know "my stuff” and truly care, you get what you come for.

What now...
I know getting started can often be the most difficult step. If you'd like to email or call 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 your happy to continue, we can agree a second session and arrange to meet regularly - usually weekly.

You only pay for the first session if you decide to continue.
