How counselling can help you:
Counselling is an invaluable resource of support, aiming to enable you to explore your issues, develop your self-awareness and understanding, heal, and grow in a confidential, non-judgmental, accepting space. Most people who come for counselling often tell me “I wish I had accessed counselling sooner!” The positive outcomes of counselling can be transformational. Some people find that they only need a few sessions, however, some choose to have more. I am happy to work in both long and short term depending on what’s best for you. I’m experienced in supporting clients with a wide range of personal issues.

How I work:
I am a Person-Centred Counsellor and work in an eclectic way, and am able to adapt my approach according to your needs.

I focus my practice on providing you with a safe, accepting, non-judgmental, respectful space in which you can feel free to explore your personal issues.
