About me

Counselling can help us when we find ourselves struggling with life's difficulties, which may be creating stress and emotional strain (feelings of anxiety, depression, loneliness, stress and helplessness).  These could be affecting you and relationships, your family or friends.

I am a qualified, experienced counsellor and practise Relational-Integrative counselling.  Which means that I draw on a selection of theories to support my work and I believe that the relationship that is created between a client and their counsellor plays a significant part in the counselling process.

I aim to work with you in such a way that will support you as you address difficult, painful issues from your past or present, you might be feeling low, anxious, confused or struggling with something specific.  I hope to provide a basis on which to explore new or different ways of living your life and relationships.

Counselling can provide time and understanding issues which can prevent us from reaching our potential and having healthy relationships. We are all affected by life's journey and often have deep-rooted, painful issues that can be limiting us today. I feel it is important to provide a safe, warm, confidential place where we can explore issues that maybe troubling you.

I fully appreciate that the counselling process can be a challenging but also positive experience for those wanting to increase their understanding of themselves, develop their self-awareness and their place in the world.

I also offer marriage & relationship counselling to couples.
