About me

’It’s okay to not be okay’

If you're feeling like the whole world and life is too much or that you just cannot cope with whatever it is that you're struggling with at present then trust me to help you find the path through this what may seem like a dark place at times. I am here to listen unconditionally and not judge anything that you may wish to bring to our therapy sessions and believe you me – I am not easily shocked! I am here to offer you respect and empathy in a confidential space.

As a qualified counselling therapist, I can offer you this safe and confidential space to explore your issues and work towards understanding yourself and others in relation to you. I have vast range of experience from both my personal and work life over the last 38 years and therefore offer to be open minded with my clients with a deep understanding of what they could be feeling and facing in life when presented within the therapy process.

As a client of mine you can expect to be welcomed warmly and accepted fully for whatever it is you wish to bring to therapy to work through with no pressure from me to follow any particular expected process! We will work together at your pace and comfort to ensure you feel safe and trusting to move forward and explore your thoughts and feelings to come to resolutions and solutions best for you – found within and from you.

I value the courage it takes to reach out and ask for help when you need it and, therefore I also understand that sometimes this can be made even more difficult to ask for support when you may be struggling financially.

I am passionate about genuinely helping people and therefore my rates of charge vary according to client circumstances and the method that the client chooses to take therapy in, i.e. phone/Skype/face-to-face.

Please do not hesitate to contact me on my email or mobile. You can text/WhatsApp/email/call me and I hope to be able to help you be happy with both the cost of and therapeutic needs met.
