About me

Does your life feel more than you can cope with? Perhaps you are feeling stressed, anxious and worrying that you are running out of mental resources. You may be in a position of responsibility and find yourself wondering if you can keep the show on the road. Have you asked yourself how bad things have to feel before you can ask for support? There are times that life creates pressure, leading to issues with self esteem that are too much for one person to cope with alone. This is when therapy can provide relief and support.

I offer person-centred Counselling, I am recognised as having a calm and gentle approach. This enables you to have a safe space to talk about your thoughts and feelings. From this foundation of being heard understood and valued, you have the freedom to explore ways of finding the sense of balance that you are seeking.

It can be helpful to confide in someone who is impartial, non-judgmental and treats your information in a confidential way. Call now and find out how I can help.
