About me

Maybe you’ve been carrying on regardless of how you feel – wearing a smile around others. However, like many others who struggle with feelings they don't understand, you may have noticed some of the following and feel there is something wrong:

  • Beating yourself up but feeling powerless to change
  • Feeling unusually emotional or numb
  • Not enjoying the things that normally bring you pleasure
  • Struggling to motivate yourself or feeling exhausted
  • Avoiding socialising and isolating yourself
  • Feeling scared of your feelings and what they might mean
  • Drinking more or using drugs without really meaning to
  • Hanging onto a bad relationship or allowing relationships you care about to suffer

If you can relate to any of this, I can help you to understand what is happening for you in a safe, confidential place without fear of judgement. I will support you in learning to deal with and understand difficult feelings or life events and freeing yourself from the painful problems they bring.

Counselling can help you gain peace of mind, become less fearful and take control of your life once more. Instead of feeling at the mercy of your feelings, you could:

  • Feel positive, calm and more secure.
  • Be more at ease and comfortable with yourself without having to put on an act.
  • Improve your ability to communicate openly and honestly in relationships
  • Develop a greater sense of control over important aspects of your life – be more confident in your choices and take appropriate actions.
  • Restore your sense of purpose, feeling more in tune with your instincts and passions.
  • Be more resilient, flexible, and spontaneous in your response to life events.
  • Discover a sense of peace and joy in your life, relationships and family.

You deserve to find some peace of mind, feel happier and more fulfilled and I am committed to helping you get there.

If you would like to speak to me or make a low-cost appointment to see how you feel about counselling, call me or drop me an email if this feels more comfortable for you. You may also find the FAQ page on my website helpful. I look forward to being a part of your journey.

Training, qualifications & experience

My training included a voluntary placement at a holistic charity in Leeds, counselling people from some the most deprived areas of Leeds through a wide range of issues. I found this work so personally rewarding that I have continued to volunteer on a weekly basis ever since.
