About me

Hello, finding the way forward is not always easy. As an experienced, qualified counsellor I can offer you an assessment session to help you work out what is right for you at this time. Perhaps you need the space to talk through what you can expect from counselling and what kind of counsellor might be best to help you with your issues. There will be no obligation on you to commit to further sessions.

I am 'Relate' trained and as such I have considerable experience of Couple Counselling and Relationship issues where there are communication difficulties and relationship breakdown. Our initial session is an opportunity for each person to speak and to be listened to so we can work out a way forward based on your needs. I welcome couples from traditional or same sex relationships.

I specialise in personal and relationship work with individuals, couples and young people and I will help you to gain a clear overview of your current situation and to plan a way forward for you tailored to your needs. I offer your initial assessment at a lower cost rate of £35.

I have worked with clients on issues such as anxiety, depression, panic disorder, anger, conflict, bereavement, loss, abuse,self harm, low self esteem and relationship breakdown.

When something is really troubling, it can be tough to talk about this with friends and family for a variety of reasons. Counselling offers a clear space and a chance to step back from your situation so you can work out what your choices are. Sometimes you don't know where to go for help; I am here to work with you honestly, without judgement and with confidentiality assured.

A qualified and professional counsellor, I offer short and long term personal and relationship counselling in a comfortable therapy centre with easy access and good parking. I have fifteen years experience of clinical practice with a variety of clients with a respected charity and I am qualified to MA level and a fully accredited member of the professional body, the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).  I am also a fully qualified counselling supervisor.

After the initial consultation we can decide together the best route for you to take, should you wish to continue seeing me we can agree a number of sessions to begin with or we can take it on a week by week basis. If that is not the best option for you at this time we can discuss other modes of counselling or support that may be open to you.
