About me

Friendly, Caring, Professional counselling service with various session times available, during the day and evening.

I bring 12 years of experience to our therapy sessions, experience that includes working with a diverse range of issues, clients, cultures, families, religions, and Race.  I offer no judgement, just a safe space to off load difficult emotions, feelings and anything in between.

The service is for Adults and Young People, face to face  Counselling.  I offer weekly sessions for an hour , where you have a space to talk openly and freely without being judged, about issues that are bothering you and interrupting your life , these can be current issues or unresolved issues from childhood, there are no limits on what you can talk about.

People always ask me what kind of people come to counselling? so I decided to include the following:

My Clients typically include:

  • Adults ( ranging in age from 18 -90)

  • Young People aged 11-18 - this can be arranged where I go into the school to see them or they can come to me, which ever suits your needs most.

  • Face to Face Counselling:

I offer a Professional, safe, confidential, non judgmental, caring, and nurturing space for Clients to explore difficult and sometimes challenging issues, together we can work through these issues, to get you to a place where you feel more able to cope with life. I bring warmth, empathy, a genuine care for people, active listening ,and occasional humor, where appropriate, to our sessions, which can feel very relaxing and less anxious for clients, and helps remove the stigma often associated with Therapy.

Outside of therapy, I am a Mum of 3, and with this brings lots of life experience also.

I look forward to hearing from you with any questions or information you require.
