About me

I support people who may be sad, stressed, anxious, angry, scared or just a little lost and confused with life, be this due to current situations or past traumas.

People come to counselling for many different reasons and find their own unique path in life as a result. I feel blessed and privileged to provide a calm and safe environment to help people find their true selves.

I work from home and am blessed with calm and beautiful surroundings. Disabled access is limited

How I work

I use a range of approaches and techniques to enable us to explore and understand any issues, in a way that suits you. During the initial consultation we will have the chance to talk about what brings you to counselling and, if you're happy to, we can arrange future sessions. I see clients both short term and longer term, depending on individual circumstances and needs. It is usual and beneficial to arrange these sessions weekly, at the same time every week.

Concerns I work with

I work with a wide range of concerns including anxiety, trauma, abuse, low self-esteem, self-harming, stress anxiety. For more details and testimonials please feel free to take a visit to my website

Getting started

It can often be daunting to reach out to begin your journey in counselling. Our initial meeting will put you at ease and also give you the chance to ask any questions about any concerns you may have. It's really easy to contact me:

Telephone on 07946386118. Please leave a message if I'm not available and I'll get back to you.
