About me

Qualified, integrative counsellor with a Masters Degree from The Relate Institute and a Degree in Psychology. Working with Individuals, Couples, Families & Young People. Specialist areas include couples therapy and family therapy.

I am passionate about providing a supportive space for people to work through any difficulties they may be facing, and I approach my work from an empathic and non-judgemental perspective

There are a whole range of difficulties that bring people to counselling, from a major crisis or traumatic event, to an ongoing issue that a person may be struggling to resolve on their own.

Family and friends are often a great source of support and advice, however, sharing your difficulties with someone who is not emotionally involved in your situation and who is dedicated to actively listening to your individual perspective, can be an empowering experience and can provide the space you need to determine how to move forward positively.

Everyone has the right to good mental health, no matter what the issue might be. If you would like to discuss whether counselling is right for you, please contact me and I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
