About me

I’m an experienced and qualified counsellor and I offer a warm and friendly therapeutic service. My aim is to create a relaxed and non-judgemental environment in which you feel comfortable and safe enough to take that first step in seeking support or guidance in their lives.

Counselling provides the space to reflect on your situation with someone who is not personally involved and who does not judge or criticise: giving you the opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings and in doing so find solutions that you are comfortable with. Counselling is a collaborative process and we go at a pace that suits you. Each session will last 50 minutes and what we talk about is confidential and entirely up to you.

If you feel you’d like to work with me, then please get in contact – We can arrange a telephone consultation free of charge, and if agreed, an initial appointment. This is a good opportunity for us to get an understanding of one another, and decide if we would like to start working together.
