About me

Your Time, Your Space

We all have an innate capacity for personal growth and transformation.

Sometimes though, life can be difficult, leaving us feeling overwhelmed by our emotions and unable to think straight.

That’s where I can help.

Counselling can help make sense of our lives, seeing things in a clearer way and becoming more at ease with our feelings.

Gradually, we may learn to accept ourselves more fully, including recognising the things that we can’t change and changing the things we can.

Why Counselling?

My belief is that everyone can benefit from counselling - I'm passionate about helping you understand and work through any fears, anxieties, stresses or traumas.

People seek out counselling for a variety of reasons. The most common is a desire to improve their life.

Counselling can potentially help when someone has been struggling to cope. It is never easy to confront our own pain and suffering, but this is often the most effective path to process feelings and bring about change.

My Practice

My Practice is in a peaceful location surrounded by trees. Clients have commented on how safe and peaceful it feels. This space has helped them focus more clearly on their feelings and help them process their emotions where they have previously struggled.

As well as a caring professional counsellor, I am a Trustee for Simon Says bereavement charity which helps children under 18 cope better after the death of a parent of significant other. My role for Simon Says is to offer support and empathy to Volunteers and parents of the bereaved children.

I offer counselling to adults, young adults (18 to 21) and couples. Counselling for young adults can be highly effective- they are often more flexible and adaptable to changes within themselves and to their environment. This is based on my experience of working with the 16-18 age group at Peter Symonds and Barton Peveril College sixth form colleges.

My approach to counselling for couples aims to promote better understanding of themselves and each other in a respectful and non-judgemental process. Through listening and understanding, my position is unbiased and caring towards each person equally.

I offer short and long term counselling with clients and am available for work with companies, health care services and employment assistance programmes.

Fully insured. My practice promotes equality and diversity.
