About me

Are you feeling low, tired, stressed. Can't sleep? Worried? Fearful or panicky? Finding it hard to cope? At certain times we all experience difficulties and doubt as we go through life and seeing a counsellor can help you face these challenges.

I am a qualified counsellor with 20 years experience working for the NHS. I offer a safe and confidential place with an open and approachable style to explore your Issues, fears and difficulties. My counselling room is bright, welcoming and peaceful. My specialist areas are stress management, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties and life coaching.

I embrace the integrative approach meaning that I draw on a range of therapeutic techniques that are best suited to each client individually.

Counselling can be a short or long term intervention and can help with exploring your thoughts and feelings in a safe place. I aim to provide a compassionate, empathetic but down to earth approach which takes account of personal history and yet be focused and goal- orientated.

Please contact me by telephone or e.mail if you have any questions or to arrange an appointment. I will always respond to messages promptly.
