About me

It’s good to talk…right?  But it’s not always easy to.  If we are lucky we have someone in our life that we can express our inner most fears/worries and find solutions.  We may even be lucky enough to have that special person in our life who understands us and helps us make changes to smooth out the path of our lives.  The problem is we tend to compare how other people cope with problems and feel inadequate if they appear to be able to carry on through life seemingly undeterred by events while you struggle to come to terms with the disturbances of life.

Having someone to talk to who will understand and empathise, without judgment is the first step to help you understand your struggle and find within yourself ways to overcome the difficulties and challenges of life’s events.

I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor and a registered member of the BACP.  My training covered CBT, Person Centred and Psychodynamic; I use all 3 theories’ in my work focussing on the approach that best suits my client.  I can offer you a safe space to explore the unsettled parts of your life and support you in developing the ability to cope with the issues that causes you to struggle.
