About me

Everyone faces times in their lives when things feel too much to cope with, at such times counselling can be a great help.

As the old maxim says 'a problem shared is a problem halved'

Being able to talk openly and freely about things that are troubling you in a safe, non-judgmental and confidential setting enables you to gain insight into your feelings and actions.

Client feedback says that you can expect a warm, friendly welcome from an approachable and experienced professional. Putting you at your ease and enabling you to relax and talk about your concerns openly and freely, supporting you to work through those concerns and emerge with self understanding and increased confidence to deal with the challenges you are faced with.
