About me

"Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll meet you there."

This Rumi quote sums up my approach to counselling and my experience will support you to get to where you want to be.

"Growth is painful. Change is painful. But, nothing is as painful as staying stuck where you do not belong." N. R. Narayana Murthy

Most of us have difficult times, anxieties and need some support to find a way back to a level playing field, to discover/rediscover more ease in our lives.

I will support you to work out what's going on, find a new perspective and make changes.I offer a comfortable, informal, environment which is warm, welcoming and confidential.

I’m here to really listen and be honest. I have an abundance of skills and over a decade of experience to make our time productive. Whatever is troubling you, whether present or underlying issues, we will explore ways to move forward and identify possibilities.

Call on 01273 731665 or email me and we can take it from there.
