About me

I offer face to face Counselliing to help you with any problems in your life, whatever it is, however big it seems. My love of helping people helps me to help you, professionally and gently. Often with humour and always with kindness.

Anxiety and depression.

Often when anxious, depressed or stressed you can feel overwhelmed and find it hard to know where to go. It can be a lonely and confusing place. Sometimes just talking to someone who is not directly involved can really help you unpick and unravel the problem and get to the core or root cause. This will put you back in control of your feelings, and on the road to recovery and empowerment, free of overwhelming stress and anxiety.

Bereavement and Grief.

Grief is as individual as we are. Whilst there are common themes in grief we all deal with it differently. I help you navigate the rough journey any loss brings by listening, guiding and gently challenging you until you are in a place to manage your feelings and live life as you want to, whilst remembering your loved one.
