About me

Feeling lost, overwhelmed or confused? Maybe you're battling with every day life and don't know where to turn. Perhaps anxiety is taking over your thoughts, constantly niggling at you and wearing you out.

Most of us struggle at times. How would it feel to have some time just for you, to focus on what you want and need?  Counselling can help to work towards accepting yourself or changing things that you are not happy with. Together we can have a look at what is going on with you, helping to give you space to think and work out what you want.

I strongly believe that we are all capable of change and that includes you. You already have the answers within you, I can support you in finding them. So if any of this resonates with you then contact me to arrange an initial appointment. You can ring me for an informal chat or drop me an email or text to find out more.
