About me

At different times in our lives we may need to reach out for that little extra support to see us through the blips, lumps and bumps also known as life. In order for us to get ourselves back on track, we may have a need for someone to sit and listen to our fears/anxieties/worries and difficulties without judging, without assuming and without opinions.

My personal journey with my youngest child diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), high anxieties and challenging behaviour, all contributed to my pathway into counselling.

I understand the impact this may have on the individual, relationships, siblings, parents and extended families. This experience underpins my interest in counselling those whose lives are likewise effected, but is not limited to specific conditions or diagnoses. I have experience with a wide range of clients; adults and young people with varying needs and difficulties which impact on their daily lives.

I offer counselling support for the individual/siblings and family; across the generations and across the spectrums of abilities and disabilities.
