About me

Often when anxious, depressed or stressed feelings can be overwhelming and we feel we have no where to go; it can be a lonely and confusing place. However, talking can really help you unpick and unravel the problem and get to the core or root cause, which will put you back in control of your feelings, and on the road to recovery and empowerment, free of overwhelming stress and anxiety.

As an experienced counsellor, who is passionate about helping you to help yourself, I offer face to face counselling for a wide variety of issues, some of which are mentioned below. Even if your issue/concern/problem is not amongst the list, I can still help. Your problems are, like you, individual, and that is how I treat you.

I find I have great success working with clients who have either low self esteem or low confidence and/or anxiety related stress. Changes counselling can make in a short space of time can be amazing. I wonder how quickly you would see the difference?

Are you feeling:

  • Anxious, stressed or depressed?
  • Experiencing problems in your relationships?
  • Lonely and isolated?
  • Generally unhappy?
  • Feeling overwhelmed?
  • Stressed at work or fear redundancy or unemployment?
  • Suffering from grief or loss?
  • Wanting to come to terms with painful experiences from the past?
  • You want to take control of your life, but need help in doing this?
