About me

Hello and welcome to my Profile. I am a fully qualified, experienced Counsellor, Couples’ Therapist & Counselling Supervisor, who can offer you time and a confidential, safe space to start to explore any problem feelings and thoughts you may have. I work with both individuals and couples.

You are the expert on you, although you may not feel like it at the moment.
Counselling can help you to discover your own resources and ways of coping. I am there to listen carefully with kindness and understanding, enabling you to find your own way forward if, and when, you are ready. We will work together according to your pace and needs.

Could Counselling Help You?

Throughout our lives most of us experience natural 'ups and downs', and most of the time we manage these well enough. However, sometimes we reach a point where events seem to overwhelm us and we feel we are struggling to manage, and carry on with our day-to-day activities.

Counselling can help to improve self-esteem, untangle emotional dilemmas, or provide much needed support to deal with grief, separation, divorce, illness or loss.
When we become low or very stressed, this can tip over into anxiety that can feel debilitating, getting in the way of our normal lives, having someone calm, neutral and non-judgmental to hear our story and provide potential coping mechanisms can really help. Although the tools to feel better are often within us, sometimes it can help to discover these resources through talking to someone trained to listen and help.

I practice at very pleasant, discreet premises including Knowle near Solihull and Central Birmingham. All premises have access to parking nearby and all attempts are made to accommodate clients with disabilities.

In addition to my private practices I currently work as a Counselling Supervisor and a Specialist Bereavement Counsellor at Solihull Bereavement Counselling Service, attached to Solihull Hospital.
