About me

I am a qualified counsellor/psychotherapist with 10 years experience. I see counselling as a shared journey, during which you can freely express your feelings, fears and concerns in a compassionate, safe, confidential and non judgemental environment.

We all experience stress and distress at times in our lives, especially when facing painful and difficult situations. This could relate to one or more of a whole range of difficulties, some of which are listed below, though sometimes it is hard to pinpoint a specific reason for feelings of anxiety or despair.

At such times it seems important to be able to ‘tell our story’ and feel truly heard and understood, as well as feeling supported emotionally. Together we can explore new ways of understanding and resolving the issues that are troubling you, leading to different more positive outcomes.

I specialise in working with anxiety, abuse and relationship issues.

Therapy is not only for those with problems. It can also be helpful for anyone who would like to learn more about themselves and their relationships.
