About me

Hi, thank you for looking at my profile.

Looking for the best counsellor for you can be a daunting experience, however it is really important. I therefore offer the first session for free allowing you the opportunity to decide if I am someone you feel you can talk to.

My aim is to be a companion rather than an expert on your journey of self-exploration. My belief is every person has within them the potential and drive to be the best they can be and the ability to resolve their own problems to change their lives in a positive way if given the right conditions to do so.

How can counselling help

Sometimes, it is not easy to discuss issues with family or friends.  Counselling can give you the opportunity to talk about issues or problems you may be facing in a safe and supportive environment.  It can provide you with the space to grow and become the person you are meant to be. Counselling can also help you overcome difficulties, develop your self-awareness, make sense of your thoughts and feelings and have more control in your life.

I aim to do this in a non-judgemental way, listening and understanding with empathy. To provide the right support to suit your needs, assist you through your specific problems, help you build your self-confidence, improve your self-esteem and feel more able to manage life circumstances.

What happens next?

Once you have contacted me I will be in touch either by email or phone to arrange a suitable time for meeting.

What to expect in your first session

This first meeting will be approximately half hour and is free of charge.  We will do an assessment to discuss your needs and the problems you feel you would like to work through. You can then decide if you wish to have further sessions with me.

Further sessions will be arranged for a mutually convenient time and are either weekly or fortnightly. I offer focused short-term work and in-depth open-ended therapy. Your counselling sessions will last for 50 minutes.
