About me

At some point in our lives we can find ourselves struggling, whether that is with home, work, relationships or medical reasons. Depression, anxiety, work related stress, trauma & addictions, are just a few that we can find ourselves dealing with.

I can help by offering as an experienced counsellor. Compassion, insight & understanding of many issues. With ideas towards challenging & moving towards a healthy & happy life.

I regard myself as a friendly, approachable & empathic person-centred counsellor. Who offers confidential & non-judgemental support. With experience working for a GP practice, adult college, facilitating group therapy within the NHS, telephone counselling support for an employee assistance company & my own private practice.

I work within the BACP ethical framework for good practice in counselling and psychotherapy which maintains a high standard of clinical practice.
