About me

October 2020.

During these difficult moment for the whole country and the wider world, I wish you peace and good health.

I am currently working under the Covid guidlines with guidance from the BACP with regards to practice. I am able to see clients face to face within the social distance rules and guidlines for meeting face to face. I am also able to conduct counselling either by phone or conference calls.

I am here to offer support and to help you address issues you may be facing, enabling you to explore your feelings and help you to come to terms with what is most difficult in your life.

Do not fear seeking help.

I can offer you the time and space to share, and to begin an on-going improvement to your way of life. I can help you to move forward and to help you become more aware of your behaviour, thoughts and feelings. 

To be a healthy, functioning human being there is a need for a process of change. I can help you in that process. I work with adults and children of all ages within a Humanistic, Person-Centered approach.

I believe in personal empowerment and positive change, which can assist you in coming to terms with what is most concerning. Helping you to become more aware, more open, and  enjoying a more enriched lif

I will provide a safe and secure environment within my private practice.  I am an accredited member of the BACP and practice within their set guidelines.  Please feel free to get in touch.

Change is possible. I hope to be able to help you on that journey.
