About me

Are you feeling depressed, anxious, lost, confused? Are difficult thoughts and emotions having a negative impact on your life? 

I am an experienced, compassionate counsellor and I am committed to helping my clients find their way through challenging times. 

I provide a safe, confidential, non judgemental space,  and will help you through the difficulties that you are facing.  At your own pace, with my support, we can work together to untangle confused feelings, face disruptive thoughts and find your way to a happier, clearer life.

Feel free to get in touch to arrange a reduced fee initial session to see how you feel about working with me.

Additional information

The number of sessions required varies greatly from client to client and is also dependent on the issue/issues involved and the pace in which you feel comfortable to progress.

Sometimes a few sessions are enough to enable you to see things more clearly or you may wish to work with me for a lot longer. With this in mind, I tend not to agree on a certain number of sessions from the outset, but allow you to decide this as we work together to resolve your difficulties.

When I work

My working hours are 9am to 8pm Monday - Friday

In person

Types of client
