About me

In light of present circumstances I am offering counselling by telephone, Skype , FaceTime or Messenger. At present I am not offering face to face consultations.

I have been a qualified counsellor since 1995. I am committed to helping people who have painful issues in their lives and want things to change. I offer a safe, confidential environment where we can talk together in complete privacy allowing you to raise anything that is causing you concern. These may be situations that go as far back as childhood but still cause you heartache or they may be more recent issues. Whatever the case, the resulting factors can often be seen in depression, anxiety and stress. My aim would be to work alongside you in looking at your concerns and giving you time and space to think through and explore these in order that we may be able to help you understand what is going on in your life and find a way through. This could mean that you experience a better quality of life than what you have known for some time.

I have a broad and varied experience and have counselled people both in the UK and abroad.I am happy to counsel face-to-face, by telephone email, or Skype.I work with individuals, couples and also the employees of companies who offer counselling for their staff.
