About me

It can often seem frightening, embarrassing or impossible to find the words and courage to express how you really feel, even – perhaps especially – to those who are closest to you.

You may have been struggling with difficult feelings for some time or faced a recent crisis in your life. Maybe you’re feeling overwhelmed, finding it harder and harder to cope with day-to-day life and you no longer seem able to resolve your difficulties on your own.

If you’d like to be able to talk openly about what’s going on in your life – about your anxiety, depression, worries or fears – I can offer you a safe space where you can air your unspoken thoughts and perhaps begin to find the words to express your feelings.

I’ll sit with you in your turmoil, in your fears, in your hopes and in your dreams. As a person-centred counsellor I believe that when you feel understood and valued you’ll be able to begin to think differently about the way you see yourself, the way you behave and ultimately the sense of meaning you find in your life.

I am a fully qualified Counsellor (see below) and a Registered Member of BACP. I hold a current DBS certificate, am fully insured and ICO registered. But counselling is about much more than qualifications – it’s about the relationship between counsellor and client.

Call, text or email me if you’d like to explore how we might work together.
