About me

Some events and experiences in life can leave us struggling with difficult feelings such as: sadness, confusion, anger, guilt, shame, hurt and fear. It can be hard to talk to friends and family about these feelings of distress, we may be anxious about burdening them with our problems or worry that we will be judged by them.

Professional counselling can help by offering a safe, supportive and confidential space for you to explore your feelings. Having the opportunity to talk honestly and openly about how you are really feeling can bring a great sense of relief. Clients often find the experience of being heard, understood and accepted in counselling an incredibly powerful one. I have found that it is from this point of acceptance that people commonly discover a fresh clarity about their life which often starts a new period of change and hope for them.
