About me

With 15+ years of experience, I am an Accredited Person Centred Counsellor, Group Facilitator and Supervisor. I am also a Personal Development Group Facilitator and Meditation Teacher.

The way I work is largely 'Person Centred' in that it embraces the uniqueness of each individual and the equality of the relationship of mutual respect and trust between client and therapist. I truly value the journey we all take in life and the challenges we come across. Sometimes, we need a confidential space to work it all out and find the answers to a happier, more authentic and joyful life.

I understand how difficult it can be to take that first step of seeking counselling. I aim to provide a safe and relaxed atmosphere by being honest, genuine and interactive. I'm down to earth and offer a safe space for you to heal and evolve. It's not easy making that first call but I know it can be extremely rewarding.

I will always suggest an initial appoinment just to meet and see if we are happy to work together and if I am the right counsellor for you.

Further information

The process of counselling helps you to realise what you want from life, improve your relationships with others, regain control and address your needs. For some it may be about living a full life rather than just existing.
Life can feel overwhelming and counselling helps you gain clarity and insight into who you are, what you believe and what you most want from life.
After an initial meeting which enables us to decide if we can work together, we would meet for 50 minutes each week. Time spans for counselling can vary, depending what you chose to bring to sessions and how you are finding the process. I have experience of working with time-limited and long term therapy.

I believe that everyone has their own answers and that given a safe environment to explore your issues you will be able to draw upon your own resources and find your solutions.
