About me

I am a BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) qualified counsellor, working with adults and young people of 12 and above. I practice in a person-centred way, drawing on other therapeutic skills to suit your needs.

I am known for being calming, gentle and resilient, creating a safe space for you to explore whatever you may choose to bring. I have an ability to reach out and connect at depth with people who are finding life a struggle, suffering and experiencing sadness. I consider it a privilege to work alongside my clients at these times, providing support and enabling insight, whilst they work through whatever is hurting them.

I see counselling as an opportunity to explore feelings, reactions and possible solutions in an atmosphere of trust, non-judgement and respect.  My intention is to create a calm, caring and confidential space which clients can use to talk things through.

I am constantly inspired by my clients' ability to empower themselves to stay safe, healthy, happy and to feel more 'alive'.

I bring a sense of faith and hope to our work together and a strong belief in your ability to find a peaceful and positive outcome.
