About me

Choosing to come for counselling is a big step and understandably you may feel anxious about how this will work for you. In our initial session we will begin to get to know each other and I will explain how we will look together at the issues that are important to you.

The person centred counselling that I offer puts you right at the heart of the process. I am able to provide you with a safe and supportive environment, where you will feel able to express your feelings without fear of being judged ...everything you say will be carefully listened to and treated in confidence ... if it matters to you then you are free to say it. I won’t be providing you with quick fix solutions but rather accompanying you on a journey to discover how you can choose to face the challenges that may currently seem overwhelming.

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor who has worked with people facing a wide variety of difficult issues including difficult relationships, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, low self esteem and addictive or compulsive behaviour.

Counselling may also help you to develop self awareness and emotional growth.

I am able to offer both day and evening appointments from my quiet and comfortable base in the Orford area. The first 30 mins of your initial appointment will be free of charge, should you choose to continue for the full hour there will be a charge of £20. Each additional one hour session will cost £40 with a discount available to student counsellors.

Counselling may seem like a big step but I will ensure you feel supported as your journey takes you forward.
