About me

About You

Have there been events in your personal or work life that are causing you deep unhappiness and discontent? Maybe you are struggling to come to terms with a loss or bereavement? You may be experiencing stress, general anxiety, low mood, or low self-esteem and are unsure why? It might be you feel disconnected and struggle to engage with family, friends, or your career how you used to and how you want to. I offer you a counselling space that is safe, confidential, and non-judgemental where the time is yours to work out what is going on, exploring your inner experiences and hopes until you find the version of yourself you wish to be.

My Experience

I have experience working with stress, anxiety, low mood, and low self esteem. I also have experience of working with grief, loss and childhood experiences that are unresolved. Though your struggle may feel a lonely place and rather overwhelming, I am here to listen and support you through your journey in a warm, empathic, accepting, and confidential space.

What I Can Offer You

I offer a free 30 minute consultation where you can confirm you have found the right counsellor. You can share your goals and decide if Person-Centred therapy is right for you. If it is, we can establish the expectations of the counselling agreement. If it is not, I can help guide you toward a different counselling modality or specialist service provider.
