About me

What is Counselling?  Will it help me?

The hardest part is often the very first step. Having an understanding of this has allowed me to help many people through painful and what felt like impossible times in their lives. Meeting people where they are right now and offering a pace that feels comfortable to them allows trust to develop.

Counselling helps many people feel supported during stressful times and life events. Being able to talk openly in private with a trained counsellor can help untangle some of the more difficult thoughts and feelings we may be experiencing. I aim to offer a place of safety, of trust and open communication. A place where you can be yourself in complete confidentiality.

How does it work?

Typically, we would meet once weekly although this can be changed by mutual agreement as sessions progress. Most people find that weekly meetings are beneficial as this provides a good sense of support at the outset. We will focus on what is important for you at any given time.

How I can help

  • Changing old, unhelpful patterns of behaviour
  • Coping with significant life changes
  • Achieving more satisfying relationships
  • Reducing stress, depression & anxiety
  • Gaining a deeper understanding of self & personal development
  • Coming to terms with past traumas
  • Overcoming panic, fears

Training, qualifications & experience

Along with deep and rich life experiences, living abroad and taking care of a family and pets, I also have the following training and experience to bring to counselling sessions with people who need support and a way to understand themselves and their situations in new and helpful ways.
