About me

I believe counselling can help us to understand and process difficult feelings, survive and move on from painful life situations and past-hurts, build our sense of self-worth and help us to accept and value ourselves.

I'm a person-centred counsellor with 12 years of NHS counselling experience. I've worked more generally in the health field for 25 years.

In my private practice I work with a wide range of issues linked to relationships, family, supporting young people, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, stress, illness, loss & bereavement, sexual abuse and assault, and workplace issues.

As an NHS counsellor I specialise in sexuality, gender and sexual health.

I also have experience of working with students within both a school and university counselling service and with carers within a carer’s support project. I have a depth of experience in working with all genders including working with young people and older adults.

Please contact me if you have any questions or would like more information about my practice.

"When the other person is hurting, confused, troubled, anxious, alienated, terrified; or when he or she is doubtful of self-worth, uncertain as to identity, then understanding is called for. The gentle and sensitive companionship of an empathic stance… provides illumination and healing. In such situations deep understanding is, I believe, the most precious gift one can give to another.” - Carl R. Rogers
