About me

Life can be challenging at times.  You may be struggling with issues from your past that are having an impact on your life and relationships.  You may be suffering from anxiety, depression, current work or relationship problems.  You may not know exactly what is wrong, but you know that you want things to change for a more positive future.

I can offer a safe and confidential space in which to explore your issues, whatever they are.  I work according to the person-centred model of counselling, offering a genuine and congruent space in which we can build a therapeutic relationship.  I believe that each of us is our own expert and sometimes we just need someone alongside to bear witness to our experience, without judgement.  My role is not to give advice or direction, but to offer the time and space for you to safely explore your issues.

I offer an initial free half hour consultation to see if working together feels right for us both. I can find out a little of what is bringing you to counselling and I can explain how I work as a counsellor.  If you decide that you would like to go ahead with the counselling, we would agree a time to meet and how often.  It is usual to meet weekly, but I can be flexible.

I attend monthly supervision to ensure professional standards.  I undertake continuing professional development to maintain and enhance my practice.

Please feel free to email, text or phone me to discuss your needs.
