About me

I'm a Registered Accredited and experienced counselling psychotherapist offering short and long term therapy for Adults, Children, Families and Couples in a safe, non-judgmental environment.

I offer supported help with various presenting issues, which include Anxiety, low self-esteem, relationships, and Bereavement Counselling. Counselling psychotherapy can help you feel supported as you explore difficult situations, helping you identify solutions, and support you, as you cope with change.

In order to keep my clients safe, I'm able to offer sessions either face to face adopting the latest government social distancing guidelines or in addition to this, I'm also experienced in 'on line' Therapy solutions.

Having now raised my family, I have always enjoyed the rewards of healthy eating and vibrant lifestyle choices to better support my positive mental and physical well-being.

I do fully understand how everyday life and lack of time can impact on us, that’s why each treatment I offer is supportive and effective to meet your needs. I look forward to meeting you as you enter your journey into counselling.
