About me

Emerging from a difficult place in your life may feel impossible at times. Counselling can offer a safe space to explore those struggles and support you to navigate your own way forward. I am passionate about making a difference to a child or adult who maybe going through difficulties for whatever reason.

I run Emerge Counselling.  

Set in a peaceful, private setting; sessions are tailored to clients’ needs. Through integrative counselling and psychotherapy approaches and techniques; together we explore your life. This is always done in a non-judgemental and empathic manner; with you at the centre of your well-being journey.  In the counselling space I seek to create a welcoming environment, where clients can explore their difficulties in a meaningful way. By exploring the present, understanding the past and looking to the future; counselling can help clients to bring about change.
