About me

Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile - choosing a Counsellor can seem daunting, but you've got this far!

By offering you the opportunity to process things at your own pace, in a confidential, non-judgmental and respectful environment, I hope we can work together to enable you to come to a better understanding of yourself, with an opportunity to explore where you fit in your world and to find peace within it.

I am a qualified accredited Counsellor,  who uses a psychodynamic model of counselling - this means I not only look at what is happening in the here and now, but also take into account childhood experiences that continue to impact you into adulthood.

I can also help people identify opportunities and goals in their life for personal improvement and growth.


  • You can email me first, or just jump straight in and call me. If I'm unable to get to the phone, leave me a message and I will ring you back as soon as possible.
  • We can have an initial chat, and if you feel you want to go ahead, I will email you a self-referral form.
  • I offer either a telephone assessment or face to face appointment (this will be free of charge), where I can answer any questions you may have. We will look briefly at what has brought you here, how counselling works, what confidentiality means, what your expectations may be etc.
  • Your counselling will be arranged to fit your availability and will move at a pace you are comfortable with. What you talk about will be led by you, and you will not be forced to work on something that you are not comfortable discussing.
