About me

Need someone to talk to? I can provide a relaxed, comfortable, confidential and safe place to talk about your issues, hurts and problems.

I believe that counselling is about healing and recovery from emotional distress.  Guilt, fear, shame, worry, anxiety, past hurts can all damage us at a deep level. As a person centred counsellor I can enable you to achieve wholeness and healing and to become your real you.

If you are anxious or uncertain about counseling I am happy to meet up with you for 30 min., free of charge, for an informal chat about what to expect etc. Absolutely no obligation to book up on the day.

I have gained a lot of experience working with adults who were abused as children and trauma as well as with more general counselling.

I understand that approaching a counsellor for the first time can be difficult or daunting. I can guarantee that you will be treated with care and I will provide a safe and comfortable environment for counselling. Please do give me a call and we can discuss how I can help you.

Please look at my video below explaining how I work.

There is also a mindfulness meditation that you might like to listen to if you are experiencing anxiety.
