About me

Are you finding life difficult at the moment? Especially during these difficult times. Do you need to talk to someone? I may be able to help. I am a qualified and experienced Integretive counsellor and can offer you professional help with a wide range of difficulties or emotional distress. I offer a warm, confidential space where you can talk about anything you want and explore emotional difficulties you may be experiencing.

It takes courage taking the first step in making positive changes in your life. I am a qualified and experienced therapeutic counsellor. I work with adults and young people. I am a genuine and warm person and I provide a calm and non-judgemental environment for you to explore, any emotional difficulties you may be experiencing. My aim is to help you by simply providing a much-needed opportunity to be heard and understood.  I know this may be hard for you to make that first call, but it could be the first step towards a more positive and happy future for you.

Please feel free to ring for an informal chat. I understand that taking the first step towards getting help is often the most difficult.
