About me

As your counsellor I will take the time to understand in-depth the issues that are having an impact on your life. We will work together, so you won't feel alone and to have someone to explore anything that may be bothering you.

I personally believe it is valuable to help each client to see potential in themselves and to gain the techniques and tools to help in everyday thinking.

I provide a non-judgemental service to every client. It is important for me as a counsellor to create a safe environment to help with any issues that may be presented in the counselling room.
