About me

Hello, I hope that I can provide a service that will support you. I believe that I have the experience to offer you a safe relationship in which you can explore anything that is troubling you. I will listen carefully to your experiences, without judging you, and I will assist you in making the changes that you want. I never tell people what to do, but I am happy to make suggestions if you feel this would be helpful.

I have worked for more than thirty five years in the caring professions, and for the last fifteen years I have been a counsellor. As a senior counsellor in primary care I provided counselling for adults in the NHS, and I have a lot of experience of working with young people.

My clients come from a wide variety of backgrounds and include people who have found it difficult to find appropriate counselling. I have worked successfully with both men and women, people who have different cultural backgrounds, and people who have different sexualities. I am happy to provide a long term relationship for you if you wish to explore deep-rooted issues in your life, and I can also offer more focussed work on issues such as depression, anxiety, relationships, bereavement anger, eating disorders and substance misuse.

I shall do my best to work with whatever issues bring you to counselling ( If for any reason I feel that I can not, I shall be honest with you, and provide you with information about other services).

I am based near the centre of Sheffield.
