About me

Sometimes we may feel we've lost our way or we struggle to cope with life's difficulties. Counselling can provide you with the time and space to make sense of how and why you feel the way you do, and help you learn better ways of coping.

I provide a private, safe and comfortable place where you can explore the uncomfortable. A place where you won’t feel judged and where you can gain a clearer understanding of what might lie behind your present feelings and gain new coping skills in many areas of difficulty.

I can help with many feelings, experiences and difficulties in your life, for example feelings of grief and experiences of trauma. I can help with phobias, relationship difficulties, addiction and obsessions and help you to overcome self defeating feelings and behaviours and provide an opportunity to live your life the way you want to.

I have many years experience working with individuals, couples and groups.

I am author of the books 'When It's Him' and, 'Surviving Other People's Self Esteem'
