About me

I originally trained many years ago with Relate working with couples, individuals and families on every aspect of their relationship difficulties. Life experience and further professional training has given me more in-depth knowledge and understanding about relationships which I believe are central to all our lives.

Life can feel a struggle for us all at times. This may be related to stress at work, relationship difficulties, life events, bereavement, or issues from the past suddenly intruding into our present.  If we are lucky, we may have a supportive partner, family, friends or colleagues to talk over our problems with, but sometimes even then, some issues may be too difficult to speak out about.

For some, a way of coping through adversity is to try to ‘keep going’ in order to distract from the real root cause of the pain. However, unresolved issues often grow leaving us feeling stuck, helpless, depressed, frustrated and angry. Feeling out of control in our lives can feel frightening and overwhelming. If you are in a couple relationship, things can feel even worse as misunderstandings grow and conflict or loneliness become complicating factors exacerbating the difficulty.

Talking things over with another person can often relieve tension and help us to see things more clearly. I can offer you my professional time and experience to explore your issues in a safe, confidential, non judgmental environment. We would work together to make meaning of how and why life may have become difficult, often by looking at the past and looking at changes that can be made to improve the quality of your life and relationships in the present.

Coming into counselling/therapy is an expensive activity so it is important that you find someone who you not only feel comfortable working with, but who is adequately trained and experienced to manage your particular difficulties. I invite you to call me to discuss any queries you have or to visit my website:   Ultimately it is only by meeting face to face that you can make that important decision for ongoing work and I wish you well in your search.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
