About me

I'm an experienced, accredited Counsellor with 9 years of counselling in both private practice and a GP Surgery setting.  I have a special interest in areas such as stress, anxiety, depression, work related issues, relationship issues, grief, trauma, domestic abuse, loneliness and anger management.

My goal is to provide a professional service with warmth and humility, complete confidentiality and comfortable surroundings with a person centred approach.  I'm an integrative Counsellor, using various theories to underpin the best approach to meet the needs of my clients.

Counselling can be a slightly daunting experience for those who have not engaged before and it is my aim to allow clients to feel entirely comfortable, secure and confident so that they may speak freely and explore the issues affecting them.  Using a non-judgemental approach, we can consider our behaviours and implement change if necessary.  There is the opportunity to see how the past is impacting on present functioning and feelings.

I'm located just off the Hillsborough to Newry dual carriageway, in a private setting, just 5 minutes from Hillsborough and 9 minutes from Sprucefield.

I am fully insured by Towergate Insurance and engage in regular clinical supervision of my counselling practice.
